Angostura Tobago Sailweek

Racing continued in Tobago on Thursday after a relaxing lay day on Wednesday. One more race was completed in beautiful conditions aside from the odd squally shower.
After the midweek lay day when the competitors had fun at idylic No Mans Land sponsored by Pepsi, Thursdays racing got off to a sombre start when the fleet acknowledged the tragic car accident on Tuesday night which claimed the life of Sean BERKLEY, a member of the race committee and mark laying skipper, by heading to wind 10 minutes before the preparatory signal.

The course was set taking the fleet south of the Island. Unlike the preceeding days the weather at the start was about 15 knots but several rain filled squalls passed across the race track. After 11 miles of racing Bruggadung skippered by Andrew BURKE of Barbados won the Racing Class followed by Blazin helmed by Peter BURKE with Les CROUCH of USA in Storm in third. Tony MACK in Team McFly showed some of his form from last year by finishing fourth.

In the Charter class Annie T skippered by Colin RUDGE (GBR) consolidated her leading position with another first with Team 1955 of David ANDREWS in second.

In the Cruising Class Nirvana sailed by Lloyd de ROCHE won taking the lead in the class overall followed by Sea Wyf and Business Machine.

The Cruiser Racing Class saw a win by Petit Creme skippered by Rawie BARROW followed by Rapajam who maintained their lead overall in the class and Wayward.
