No stopping Die Hard


Share post:

LIVING UP to their name, Island Water World Die Hard fought back and won the final two races to snatch the title from Impulse by just one point on Tuesday’s final day of the Coastal Series in the 80th anniversary Mount Gay Round Barbados Regatta.

Organised by Barbados Cruising Club in association with Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc, and Mount Gay, the regatta concluded in fine style in a sunny Carlisle Bay, wind up to 28 knots, and a relatively flat sea.

The ultra-fast flying machines, in particular, including the multihulls, revelled in the conditions along the South Coast, with a long beat out to Oistins and a rewarding blast back to Carlisle Bay.

In Carlisle Bay, where winds remained around 18-20 knots, the J/24 fleet enjoyed close battles in the final four races of the series. With Robbie Yearwood and team on Island Water World Die Hard from Grenada, and Neil Burke and team on Impulse equal on points going into the final day’s racing, competition was intense.
