Conor Fogerty’s Sunfast 3600 Bam and the Michael Wright-chartered Lombard IRC 46 Pata Negra flew the flag for the Dublin Club and took class wins as Irish entries consistently out performed much larger boats in the week long race.
High winds and mighty seas continued for the fourth day of racing yesterday. Eight teams had finished the race and 34 yachts had officially retired, with 40 teams still racing on the third night.
Irish Sailor of the Year Conor Fogerty, crowned earlier this month for his 2017 solo transatlantic victory, was leading the seven-boat IRC class three fleet with a commanding lead and a 50-mile windward leg left to the finish in Antigua.
Crewed entirely by amateurs, Fogerty’s Jeanneau Sunfast 3600 previously won class three in 2016.
