Group 1 - R3: The Privateers coming back strong

Three exciting races and three different winners in the Islands' group. After SSL Team Puerto Rico "Los Boricuas" (Race 1) and SSL Team Antigua & Barbuda "Rum Runners" (Race 2), it was SSL Team Bermuda's (Race 3) turn to get their first win at SSL Gold Cup 2022 Qualifying Series Round 1.

With shifty light winds on the racecourse on day 3, the sailors' nerves were put under pressure, and it took great racing from the Privateers to come out first in this third race. The Rum Runners from Antigua came back from a weak start to grab the 2nd place. Leaders during half of the race, Los Boricuas from Puerto Rico, got stuck with no wind some meters away from the finish line and had to give up their 3rd place to SSL Team Tahiti "Black Pearls" for just 7".
