35th Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta – Grand Finale

The 35th Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta came to a close with the single-handed race, cream teas, gig racing and prize-giving ceremony in the historic 18th century Nelson’s Dockyard.

The intrepid sailors participating in yesterday morning’s single-handed race headed out in the building breeze. In the small classics class (under 45′ LOD) 30-foot fractional rigged 1963 Rita came first, in the large classics class (over 45′ LOD) 50-foot schooner Adventurer came first and in the spirit of tradition class 1970 Nicholson 55 Eager won. Adventurer experienced the extra challenge of having to sail back into the harbour with the aid of the helpful dinghy wranglers when her engines failed.

The evening prize-giving ceremony was held last night at the Dockyard Museum compared by the regatta coordinator, Robin Stout. Barrels of rum sponsored by English Harbour Rum were presented to the winners.

After the single-handed race winners were awarded their trophies, the ceremony continued with the presentation to the Concours D’Elegence winners who were judged before racing started last Wednesday. In the Traditional class professionally maintained Navasana won, and for privately maintained New Moon won. In the Vintage class professionally maintained Nordwind won, and privately maintained Adventurer won, she also got a special mention. In the Classic class professionally maintained Bolero came first and Alani won the privately maintained trophy. In the Spirit of Tradition class, Freya came first in the professionally maintained and Revelia was first in privately maintained, she also received the Arne Frizell prize. The overall winner of the Concours D’Elegance was given to Nordwind. Hearty congratulations to all the boats that work so hard at maintaining their beautiful classic yachts.

The prize-giving ceremony continued with barrels of rum presented to first, second and third placed winners of each class in the regatta.
