Eight performance cruisers and race boats will be in CSA 1. The largest entry in CSA 1 is Peter Anthony’s Antigua Farr 65 Spirit of Juno with Dominique Tian’s Ker 46 Tonnerre de Glen having just finished third in class for the 2022 RORC Transatlantic Race.
There is an international match race in the multihull class with David Slater’s Toronto team racing Outremer 45 Delphine against Stephan Bourne’s Royal Hong Kong YC team on Rapido 60 Ineffable. The nine-strong Classic Class features six Carriacou Sloops, the biggest gathering of the traditional wooden boats for many years. The largest entry in the Classic Class is also the oldest entry in the regatta. Mathew Barker’s Alfred Mylne sloop The Blue Peter was launched in 1930.
