Séamus O’Donnell Shares this video of the J Class in action during the 2020 Antigua Superyacht Challenge earlier this month.
The challenge was held in Antigua in March before the St Barths Bucket Regatta when yachts over 80 feet were invited to participate in an exciting, friendly event – the Superyacht Challenge Antigua!
The SYCA Committee headed by Paul Deeth and Stan Pearson host four days of spectacular racing using the ORCsy rating rule. From a Start/Finish line off the entrance to English Harbour, the course marks for the four 12 – 30 mile (approx) races are set daily according to the prevailing conditions off the south coast of Antigua.
Hosted by the Admiral’s Inn and Antigua Rigging in association with National Parks Antigua, the Superyacht Challenge Antigua is proving very popular with a magnificent fleet of Superyachts taking part.
Designed to be solely for the pleasure of superyacht owners, their guests and crew. The magnificent fleet took part in four days of spectacular racing. With daily races along the stunning south coast of Antigua and laid back social events, the Superyacht Challenge Antigua is a wonderful celebration of sailing and parties.
The racing is very competitive but the Superyacht Challenge Antigua is dedicated to pure fun afloat and ashore, where all participants enjoyed a relaxed party atmosphere.
The Superyacht Challenge Antigua has one clear objective; to provide all the facilities to stage an ideal event for an exclusive selection of Superyachts, where fair racing and good companionship are valued above all else.
