J/24s Enjoy Gorgeous Grenada Sailing Week

Friday 1st February saw the final race day for the seventh edition of the Island Water World Grenada Sailing Week 2019. Once again, the fleet saw spectacular conditions out on the water. The balmy early morning calm fortunately gave way to a good breeze as the trade winds kicked in. Competitors made their way to the start line with everything still to race for. Fredrick Sweeny’s Attitude, Robbie Yearwood’s Die Hard and Stephen Bushe’s Hawkeye led the way in the J/24 fleet. But it was Attitude with 10 wins out of 18 that took the final honours. The final night’s prize-giving and the Mount Gay Wrap Up party were held at the upper restaurant of Secret Harbour Marina overlooking Mount Hartman Bay. Nearly US$1,000 was raised during the event to support the first GSA Youth Sailing Team who competed in the J/24 Class and had an excellent time out on the water. The Organising Committee wants to thank everyone involved and hopes to see everyone again next year. Overall results for the J/24:

1st – Attitude – Fredrick Sweeney – St Lucia
2nd – Die Hard – Robbie Yearwood – Grenada
3rd – Hawkeye – Stephen Bushe – Trinidad
