ANTIGUAN YOUTH SAILORS PARTICIPATE IN ST THOMAS INTERNATIONAL OPTIMIST REGATTA
Monday 30th June 2014

The St Thomas International Optimist Regatta was held from June 21 to 23 and two Antiguan youth sailors were among the Regatta's 60 competitors.

There was only one start line for all 60 sailors which provided a considerable challenge to participants but Antigua's youth sailors were up to the challenge.

In the Red Fleet, Rocco Falcone finished 7th and placed 13th overall in the fleet of 60 sailors. His best race was a first-place finish. Also in the Red Fleet, Louis Bavay finished in 9th place and finished 22nd overall.  Louis' best race was an 8th place finish.

It was a great event with beautiful weather.  The course was set in open water, offering considerable challenges with 13 to 17 knots of wind and good swells.

Full results can be found here.

Congratulations to the Antiguan team.  Next on their agenda is the Optimist European Championship to be held from July 12 to 20 in Dublin, Ireland. Good luck!
