It is considered one of the best times to be on the island of Antigua. From April 19, the country will host the world renowned Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta and the Antigua Sailing Week, two events which bring patrons together to witness a fantastic assemblage of yachts in ideal Caribbean trade winds for an unforgettably fun coastal experience.
Hosting over 50 to 60 yachts every year, the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta has become one of the most premier classic yachting events worldwide. The race facilitates both traditional and non-traditional vessels which form a beautiful fleet on the Caribbean Sea. The Antigua Yacht Club organized race takes place annually and will run from April 19-24, 2012.
To add to this spectacular showcase, the Antigua Sailing Week follows from April 29 to May 4, 2012. This yacht regatta features various exciting boat races and is held at Nelson’s Dockyard. The Antigua Sailing Week attracts over 150 yachts with 1,500 participants and five times as many spectators annually.
