Day 1: A great round-the-island race and a very respectable 2nd place finish for HH6601. R-Six Team 6601 shined upwind, catching and passing nearly the entire fleet at the windward mark.
Day 2: Another awesome day of racing and today’s two races saw the fleet battling it out in various conditions around the Southwest half of the island. R-Six Team 6601 had another great day, sailing strong upwind and fighting through adversity with stellar crew work and determination. They finished the day with a 2nd and 1st place corrected, putting them just one point behind the leader, Bieker 53 'Fujin', heading into the third and final day of racing.
Day 3: An incredible finish to an amazing St. Maarten Heineken Regatta! HH66-01 ‘R-SIX’ finished 2nd today on corrected time, evening the overall score with Bieker 53 Fujin. Both R-Six Team 6601 and Fujin finished the regatta with a total of seven points, with the tie breaker going to the boat that finished best in the final race. First overall went to Fujin, who sailed a great regatta and, at only seven tons, is lightning fast. We are thrilled with an incredible result and so proud of the boat and the team on R-SIX, who sailed a hard-fought regatta against some very experienced and well-sailed opponents.
Thanks to all the competitors, the Offshore Multihull Class, and the event organizers for a great weekend!
