HIHO Antigua Fun CupNovember 29, 2011


Gusty & shifty wind conditions greeted racers at the inaugural 2011 HIHO Antigua Fun Cup regatta in Falmouth, Antigua.  Raced in new PICO dinghies, the event saw two-man teams comprising adult & junior racers battle it out over 6-races on the 2-day regatta schedule.  Junior racers then raced singlehandedly in two divisions: 12 and under and 13-18 years old.  Antiguan’s Rocco & Paolo Falcone aced the doublehanded division with Karen Porch and Tanner Esty in 2nd.  BVI racers Sam & Andy Morrell took 3rd.  Sam Morrell was equal first in the under-12 singlehanded fleet but took 2nd to Rocco Falcone when the tie was broken.  Antiguan Hosea Williams took the older singlehanded division.  The inaugural event saw competitors from Antigua, the BVI’s, Guadeloupe, France and New York.  Superb racing was complimented by meals hosted by the Antigua Yacht Club and a great dinner at Cloggy’s restaurant.  “We had two days of great racing,” said HIHO head honcho Andy Morrell.  “We loved the grownup/kid format, plus Antigua is a favorite island to visit.”
