ICAP Leopard wins the Yachting World Trophy

Racing at Antigua Sailing Week continued on April 26, with the Yachting World Round Antigua Race. Thirty-nine yachts entered the race which started in fantastic conditions with 15 knots of breeze from the southeast and a moderate sea state. The breeze increased substantially on the windward side of Antigua, but an area of calm winds on the northwest corner of the island and a dead beat to the finish slowed the fleet.

Mike Slade's Farr 100, ICAP Leopard took line honours in an elapsed time of 5 Hours, 13 minutes and 40 seconds to win the Yachting World Trophy.

Karl Funk's Kernan 47, True, showed great pace to win both CSA 0 and CSA overall after time correction. True beat several larger yachts around the course and looks to be a force to be reckoned with.
