Mary Rose wins the 2nd race - unbeaten in Vintage Class B!
Opposite it was first seen in the results Mary Rose again is the fastest yacht!
Mother Nature delivered once again perfect conditions for the second day of the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta. Three hours of exhilarating racing were fully appreciated by crews returning to Antigua Yacht Club Marina. Salt encrusted on the dock, the Classics Clan shared their memories of a great day on the water, even the whales came out to play, captured by photographer, Cory Silken.
15 knots of Trade's built during the day, gusting up to 25 knots and the amazing classics were lifting up their skirts with white water hissing at the rail. The Butterfly Course consisted of two tight triangles, testing boat handling to the maximum, on six short legs of roughly two to three nautical miles. After two days of racing still remains unbeaten: Herreshoff Schooner Mary Rose! Congratulations to Geri and the whole crew!
Mary Rose won 2 Minutes ahead of Atrevida from Brasil after corrected time.
For the 3rd race tomorrow 15 to 17 knots of wind are announced, almost perfect conditions for fast sailing with Mary Rose! So all friends of Geri and his schooner are asked to cross their fingers on Sunday from 10.30 AM (4.30 PM CET) on for 3 hours!
