Antigua Yacht Club, Monday 13 February 2023 - The Skippers’ Briefing for the RORC Nelson’s Cup Series was held at the Antigua Yacht Club. PRO Stefan Kunstmann welcomed the competitors to the Event Centre at the Antigua Yacht Club.
Two races are scheduled for Race Day One of the Nelson's Cup with the first start scheduled for 1000 AST. For those lucky enough to be in Antigua, the RORC fleet will be starting from a line off Fort Charlotte with a great view also available from Shirley Heights. Weather forecasts are predicting a steady north easterly breeze, coupled with up to two-metres of swell. The first day of the RORC Nelson’s Cup look set to be a thriller.
A huge variety of raceboats will be racing under the IRC Rating Rule to decide class and the overall winner of the inaugural Nelson’s Cup Series. The RORC fleet includes a stunning fleet of carbon-fibre raceboats, vintage ocean racers, Class40s and performance cruiser/racers. For the Antigua 360 Race, high-performance Multihulls racing under MOCRA Rules are expected to join the IRC Fleet.
