J/24 Barbados Mt Gay Regatta
June 03, 2013
The Barbados J/24 fleet continues to grow by leaps and bounds. This year’s Mt Gay Regatta saw a tremendous, enthusiastic turn-out for the J/24 class with 14 boats participating in the event, essentially all the J/24s in Barbados! Sailing like a pro was Bailey’s team on FULLY COVERED, taking the regatta counting three firsts and three seconds for 9 points in the seven race regatta. The dog fight for the balance of the top five made for some spirited racing within the fleet. Coming out on top was Povey’s HAWKEYE with 23 points to take second overall. Mayers’s ESPERANZA finished third with 25 points, Burke’s IMPULSE took fourth with 26 points, and Sweeney’s ATTITUDE took fifth.
