Commodores Compete for Top Prizes at Lowell Wheatley Anegada Regatta

West End Yacht Club Commodore, Dave Cooper, sniffed at
RBVIYC Commodore Chris Haycraft’s Pipedream’s
transom the entire 26-mile leg from Road Harbour to the Anegada Reef Hotel for
the finish in this annual BVI Yacht Club summer regatta. Starting 12 minutes
behind in the pursuit race, Shamrock V finished in 2nd place only
4 minutes behind the winning Pipe Dream
giving Haycraft and Cooper first and second respectively. Kevin Wrigley won
third on a Bavaria 49 charter boat. The race was well attended with captains
and crews partying well into the night before the return trip back to Tortola
on Sunday, July 16th.
