A Traditional boat regatta this weekend at The Antigua Yacht Club


So the small group of traditionally built West Indian Boat owners are racing this weekend. Our boat Zemi is currently out of the water getting ready for the Antigua Classic Yacht regatta in April and won't be able to make it but the other boats will be there. Here is more from the AYC:
Dear Members,

Please note that on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th March we will be hosting a gathering of West Indies Sail.

On Saturday afternoon the boats will be on the AYC dock from noon and we will be running a bar & BBQ on the lawn from 4:00pm. We are also planning a short film show featuring the boats.

On Sunday there will be a race starting at 1:30 p.m. with prizegiving on the lawn.
All proceeds will go to the Sailing Academy and some of our young sailors will be taking part in the racing. Anybody wishing to race please speak to the boats on Saturday.

All the yachts will be on the AYC dock for the weekend so please note no dockage will be available for other members’ yachts during that period.

Boats taking part will include: Genesis, Summer Cloud, Alexander Hamilton, Pipe Dream, Ocean Nomad, Sweetheart, Good Expectation, At Last.

Kind Regards,
Elizabeth Jordan
