By Jo Gawaith: "Pindar’s premier racing yacht ‘Pindar AlphaGraphics’ made an impressive Antigua debut yesterday claiming both line honours and overall first place in the prestigious Guadeloupe to Antigua race. The annual precursor to Antigua Sailing Week, the race saw a dozen boats cross the start line of Des Haies to sail the 44-miles across the Caribbean Sea to English Harbour.

Sailing in moderate south-easterly winds at an average of 14 knots, the Pindar Open 60 took 2 hours and 51 minutes to complete the race, almost an hour ahead of ‘Destination’ in second place and 33 minutes slower than the course record of 2 hours and 18 minutes set by ‘Mari-Cha IV’ in 2004."
