How the Antigua Classic Sailing Regatta was held

Share

The Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta was held on the south coast of Antigua from 14-19 April. This year's regatta featured six ships over 100 feet in length. The largest yacht is the 213-foot, three-masted schooner Adix, built in 1984 (on the cover of the photo gallery). One of the largest sailing yachts built since the 1930s, this beauty has a displacement of 370 tons. Adix was the winner of her class. Seven boats won all four races and also made history: Dragonera, Heron, Janley, Mary Rose, Paloma VI, The Blue Peter and Wild Horses.
