The following day we planned an afternoon wandering the docks at the Antigua Yacht Club for close up views of the yachts participating in the 2014 Classics Yacht Regatta. If I recall correctly, about 60 yachts from all over the world participated in this event; yachts from Europe, the UK, the USA, the EC and many others were moored to the docks for all to admire.
Rather than show individual photos I’ve included a collage of just a few of these amazing yachts. You can click once on any photo to bring it up, then again to enlarge it.
Perhaps one of the most stunning yachts was the J Boat replica, Rainbow JH2, at 39.95 meters. This boat hails from the J Boat era of the 1930’s when the America’s Cup was contested in these giant yachts built to the J Boat rule. Rainbow is currently for sale for approximately US $19,000,000.00. For more detail on the yacht you can see her at this link
You’ll see her again soon sailing in the 2014 Classic Yacht Regatta.
