Yes, our Adventure Antigua classic yacht "Ocean Nomad" is ahead in the Traditional Class after the first two races in the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta. We were neck and neck with Alexis Andrews' Genesis the first day and just beat her across the line. Yesterday we started ahead and pretty much stayed ahead for the entire race with one close call towards the end. There are two more races scheduled but today the weather is looking very light and there is even some rain on the radar too. The island is so dry and dusty that i suppose it could do with some rain, but it could make racing even harder. IT's been fun so far. The Antigua Classic Regatta is bigger than ever and is growing while most regattas around the world are shrinking in these hard times. It's an amazing sight to see all the beautiful classic designs on the water. Wish us luck! I'm off to the races.
