38th Antigua Sailing Week Kicks Off Tomorrow

When registration for the 38th annual Antigua Sailing Week closed today 183 boats representing 27 different countries had registered to race in the granddaddy of them all. Racing kicks off tomorrow with the Dickenson Bay Race from English Harbour and will be tough for the next couple of days. Light winds and big seas deteriorated into rainsqualls later in the afternoon. Durley Dene, a Bavaria 36 in Bareboat VI, saw 40 knots and whiteout conditions on its trip from Jolly Harbour to Falmouth Harbour this afternoon; forecasts for this kind of weather continue until Tuesday.
