Competitors honoured at prize giving
The prize giving for the 2019 Antigua Bermuda Race was held at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club on Thursday.
Past commodore and Antigua Bermuda Race chairman, Les Crane was assisted by Margaret Crane. Handmade customised plaques, fired by John Faulkner in the Royal Naval Dockyard, were awarded to every competing yacht.
Giles Redpath’s Lombard 46 Pata Negra (GBR), skippered by Andy Lis, was awarded the Warrior Trophy, as the overall winner of the 2019 Antigua Bermuda Race.
“This was just a fabulous race, Scallywag was in a world of its own but all the rest of the IRC fleet finished with 24 hours of each other on a 1,000 mile course,” Crane said. “There was really tight competition for the overall win, and second place was won by just 21 minutes.”
