ZINGARA
 
 
The Bajan TP52 Zingara (Conviction) set it sails on April 27th for the Peters & May Round Antigua Race. Chartered by Canadian Richard Reid (National Yacht Club), alongside 15 sailors, 11 of which were Canadian, it was the beginning of an adventure.  
 
Competing in a 53-mile race against 33 boats, the team was ambitious to get to Antigua to prepare their charter boat and get a feel for the environment. The crew of Zingara arrived for 2 days of practice before the race, which left them feeling more confident going into it. 
 
With winds ranging from 14-16 knots, the sailors were ready to start their journey. Little did they know what was about to happen...
