Antigua Sailing Week 2005

The 38th annual Antigua Race (Sailing) Week kicked off yesterday. Here’s a synopsis of the first day from Sailhead.com. Be sure to check in through the week here and here for updates. It looks like there’s a terrific competitive line up in the big boat class – including Tom Hill's Titan XII, the topic of this post – here is the official 2005 scratch sheet. I wrote about Antigua Week back in March…it’s an epic event and well worth attending if you have the chance…the analogy I use is that it’s like a Mardi Gras for sailors, big and brassy, crowded and sometimes a little out of control. The Antigua Classics Regatta on the other hand is more like Jazz Fest, mellower, classier and maybe a bit more even keeled. I guess another way to put it is…are you a reader of Sailing Anarchy or Latitude 38 ;-)
