1st race - 1st place!
After won the Concours d'Elegance Gerald Rainer and the whole crew on board Mary Rose set the next success!
Glorious conditions greeted hundreds of avid sailors taking part on the first day of the Antigua Classics Yacht Regatta. The fleet of 46 classics was an incredible sight, assembled outside Antigua's Falmouth Harbour to race “The Old Road” course. The squally weather of the preceding day had given way to solid trade winds, with perfect 15-20 knots of breeze pumping from the east, kicking up the characteristic Antiguan swell.
15 entries are racing in the Vintage Class, for yachts in original condition, designed and launched before World War II. In Vintage Class B, the winner was the 1925 Herreshoff, Mary Rose: 2h 34min after corrected time! 2 ½ Minutes in front of the Brasilian Atrevida, 4 Minutes in front of Coral of Cowes from Antigua!
In the fleet of all Vintage Yachts Mary Rose is now 4th, just 5 Minutes behind the leading Black Watch from US!
Congratulations to all!!!
