8 May 2013: Final wrap up report, 2013 Antigua Sailing Week: Louay Habib

With yacht crews representing 26 different nations, the 46th edition of Antigua Sailing Week was a truly international affair. Few would doubt that the sailing waters around Antigua provide one of the best race tracks anywhere in the world and English and Falmouth Harbours offer some of the best facilities, hotels, restaurants and bars in the Caribbean.  »

Thursday 2 May was the penultimate day of racing at Antigua Sailing Week and after Lay Day there was a relaxed atmosphere in Nelson's Dockyard where the majority of the Bareboat fleet reside. Ian Galbraith's Oyster 53 Jigsaw, racing in CSA 7, is also moored in Nelson's Dockyard and the sound of bagpipes from the Scottish boat as it left the dock was all-inspiring. Torrential overnight rain raised the humidity and sucked away much of the wind to produce stifling early morning conditions but by the time racing started, 10 knots of breeze had filled in from the southeast, which stayed consistent all day.

After two days of relatively calm weather by Antiguan standards, full Trade Wind power returned to deliver a spectacular day of action at Antigua Sailing Week. Big breeze and blazing sunshine whipped up the racing action, especially in the big boat classes, which were fully powered up all day. The race committee responded to the change in conditions by altering the schedule for CSA 1 & 2 to a brace of races on a long windward leeward course off the southwest corner of Antigua and there was some ballistic action.  »

Chilled Out Antigua

Beautiful sunshine, crystal clear blue skies and a gentle breeze produce a positive vibration for the first day of racing at Antigua Sailing Week. Winners are always grinners but as sailors came ashore, after three hours of racing in paradise, there were smiles all round.
