Antigua Sailing Week is one of the best regattas in the Caribbean and on many people’s bucket list to race and experience worldwide.
Antigua Sailing Week
Yachts from all over the world arrive into English and Falmouth Harbours to participate in one of the world’s major sailing events. The 52nd Antigua Sailing Week will be held from the 27th of April to the 3rd of May, 2019. From small beginnings this regatta has developed over 50 years to become one of the preeminent yacht racing events in the Caribbean and one of the most prestigious worldwide.
Well over 100 yachts participate each year, ranging in size from 24 feet to over 100 feet. The Regatta attracts all types of yachts from serious racing boats including state-of-the-art, high-tech racing machines to a variety of performance cruising and cruising boats and even features a Club Class for less serious racers who want to be part of the on-the-water action.
The sight of all these yachts is unforgettable, both from vantage points on the shore and from spectator boats carrying onlookers alongside the races. The reputation of Antigua Sailing Week allows the event to attract some of the world’s top racing and performance cruising boats and some of the most famous professional sailors in the world. You don’t need a high-tech boat to participate. Olympians are often found racing bareboats from bareboat sponsor Dream Yacht Charters.
