Various classes – Antigua Bermuda Race 2019 – Day 3 – the Supermaxi SHK Scallywag HKG clearly leading with 400nm to go


Difficult sailing with the fleet encountering a pressure ridge over a thousand miles wide, right across the race course, and the leading Dowell 100 SHK Scallywag (HKG) of David Witt came to a halt at certain moments. After snakes and ladders in the patchy breeze, the leading Supermaxi has touched wind again with 400nm to go to the finish. The chasing pack are enjoying tight racing with only 18 miles of separation between the next five boats: Esprit de Corps IV (CAN), Pata Negra (GBR), Maremosso (GER), Challenger (CAN) and Raucous (SUI). —- The race tracker with positions, the entry list, the event website with report of day 3 and the videos.
