Racing came to a conclusion today at the 28th edition of Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta, sponsored by Panerai. The Windward Course was raced today by all classes and featured a glorious reaching start outside Falmouth Harbour to the deep water Woodstock mark followed by a spectacular downwind surf to Old Road Bluff then a long beat to Cape Shirley.
With a total score of just 4 points, Mary Rose is among the top 3 yachts in all 9 categories!
Mary Rose, skippered by Geri, scored a perfect four races to win the class. Brazilian schooner, Atrevida was second, just ahead of Richard Oswald's Coral of Cowes. Geri spoke after finishing the regatta: “The rating system in our class worked very well. Yesterday, after time correction, we only beat Coral by 7 seconds and today, we were less than two minutes ahead of Atrevida. Mary Rose is a much smaller boat, which meant that we could get inshore for the lifts off the land but the big schooners had the advantage of waterline length, so the differences evened out. The Mary Rose crew are such fun to sail with. I said before the regatta, the three most important things were: Don't get hurt, don't hurt the boat and have fun – we pretty much stuck to that plan.”
Congratulations to the whole crew!
