The last leg of the last race decides the 2007 Nanny Cay Nations Cup
It’s hard to imagine how it could have been
closer. The 20th and final race of the weekend saw b.mobile Team BVI
two points behind Team ‘Holmberg BEYC’. The BVI team needed to finish
the final race with two boats between them for a tie or three for a
win. This was not very likely with the super consistent Holmbergs
scoring nothing worse than a third so far…
what it boils down to is this. If the BVI win the final race Holmberg
has to come 5th (and last!) for the BVI to win. If the BVI place 2nd
and the Holmbergs last it will be all tied up.
Race 19 saw the Holmbergs looking shaky for the first time. They
rounded the first windward gate last and only managed to get past
Annapolis and the Dutch to place thrid. Meanwhile the BVI could not get
past the Canadians who won the race.

perfect start with all 11 IC24s hitting the line with speed.
Bryshaun Scatcliffe, helming for Conyers, managed to win the pin end
with great speed as they took off along the shore just off Nanny Cay.
