Antigua – Antigua Sailing Week’s 51st edition begins in exactly 2 months on April 28th. We already have 75 entries hailing from over 15 countries and we can’t help but say it is shaping up to be a fantastic regatta!
We are happy to have Sergio Sagramoso’s Melges 32, Lazy Dog, back to vie for top honours this year. Last year this small but feisty crew from Puerto Rico were winners of the Lord Nelson Trophy. We are also excited that many of the boats who have raced in the exceptionally challenging edition of the RORC Caribbean 600 will be joining us again. Check out the current entry list here.
Friends and family who are accompanying participants to Antigua Sailing Week and aren’t planning on racing, can have their day on the water by booking a spot on a Chase The Race cruise with Wadadli Cats. This year daily cruises leave from Falmouth Harbour Marina and can be booked and paid for in advance through our website.
Watch friends and family cross the start line and race off to the marks before cruising to a sheltered harbour for a swim, snorkel and relaxation on deck sipping rum cocktails. Return to the docks in time to celebrate with the victors at the afternoon prize-giving at Antigua Yacht Club.
For the partiers, as always we plan to bring you the best in Caribbean entertainment for the week starting with our island style opening ceremony. We are requesting that all crews don their most festive team shirts and join us en masse for the parade on Saturday 28th at Antigua Yacht Club. Efforts will not go unrewarded, as there will be free rum at the finishing end of the parade to kick things off courtesy Round Antigua Race sponsors Peters & May.
This is going to be another exciting year of racing, spectating and partying. Are you ready?
