‘Titan 15’ inched ahead to cross the finish line first after 5h 18m 55secs to win the Yachting World Round the Island Race at Antigua Sailing Week for the fastest elapsed time. ‘Ran’ followed in quick succession to take an overall win by just over a minute and a half on corrected time. The team on ‘Sin Duda’ the American Santa Cruz 52 sailed a good opening race in Racing 2 beating the Swan 56 ‘King Sturge’ by five minutes on corrected time. One of the most competitive classes has to be Racing 3 with some extremely closely rated boats racing virtually boat for boat. The older local J/122 ‘Lost Horizon’ fell to brand-new American J/122 ‘Catapult.’ while ‘Oystercatcher XXVI,’ and the Reichel Pugh 44 ‘Peake Yacht Services’ continued their season-long battle with ‘Peake Yacht Services’ taking the upper hand.
