Breeze steadies for final day of Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta

The last race of the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta on Sunday, the windward race, saw the winds calm down to a steady 18 to 20 knots with clear Caribbean skies which gave the crews a welcome break from the blustery last two days of racing.
