Time to go home - the S Boats came out of the water this morning. Thank you to the many talented people of Antigua who made our trip here a success. See you in Newport!

The S Class enjoyed a big success at the 2013 Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta, despite sitting out day 2 which Chairman Kenny Coombs described as the wildest conditions in the 26-year history of the event. Over the remaining days we raced 70+ nautical miles in challenging conditions.

Somewhere Captain Nat Herreshoff is looking down on all this and we hope he would be as pleased with our effort as we are with the wonderful boats he designed and built.
