Antigua Sailing Week

21st April – 1st May

Charter of Yacht with a Professional Skipper / Owners Representative – POA

Antigua Sailing Week is now accepted as the biggest international regatta in the Caribbean and is also one of the top five regattas in the world. The atmosphere both on the water and off is like no other event. The secret is to find the balance between serious racing and serious partying!

The races are scheduled from Sunday to Friday with a layday on Wednesday and the prize giving is in Nelson’s Dockyard on Friday evening. This gives you time for a day or two of training before the regatta starts and the last Saturday to relax.

The schedule tends to change slightly each year but in 2015 the racing class went like this:

Day 1 Sunday One fairly short race.

Day 2 Two races off the south coast of Antigua.

Day 3 Same as day 2.

Day 4 Lay day. A day of relaxing, partying or catching up on sleep!

Day 5 Two races.

Day 6 One race followed by the prize giving party in the Dockyard that evening.
