BARBADOS - sailing- 27th Heineken Regatta

'Bruggadung 11' continues to sail successfully
Web Posted - Sat Mar 10 2007 Compliments of the Barbados Advocate


BARBADIAN boat Bruggadung 11 continues to sail with great success in regional tournaments.
Owned by Paul Johnson and skippered by Andre Burke, Bruggadung II scored its latest success winning its class at the 27th Heineken Regatta which was recently sailed in St. Maartin.

Bruggadung II recovered from a fifth place finish in the first race on Friday, to win the first race on Saturday while finishing second in the second race. This left Bruggadung 11 tied with Expensive Habit skippered by John Bishop from St. Thomas.

But on Sunday, the Bajan crew came to grips with continuing high winds and rough seas, and aided by a wind shift on the last leg which put them in a commanding position, they went on to win the final race by 37 seconds ahead of their closest competitor.

This win follows their successes in the Tobago Race Week, and the Mount Gay regatta in Barbados. Both of these events were won by Bruggadung II last year.

Their very competitive Spinnaker 6 class included 12 boats hailing from St. Thomas, USA, St Maartin, the Netherlands, Antigua, and Guadeloupe.

Over 200 boats participated in 20 classes in what has become the largest and most competitive regatta in the Caribbean. Sailors from around the world participated in the regatta, many of them sailing bareboats  boats that are chartered without crew. This regatta is a major money earner for St. Maarten. (AB)
