Late to the dance, Paulo, but congrats on the new boat, she looks like a good compromise and should be a blast to sail.. pity to have to wait for June!
Thanks for that link to the racing at Antigua.. we were at the 'after party' for the Carib 600 a couple of years back in 2010.. very cool, relaxed laid back affair marred only the the fact that some boats had yet to finish.. it was a completely unexpectedly light air affair (so unexpected the committee never posted a time limit! so at least one boat was still 'racing' when they were handing out trophies...)
