About the event:
2017 is the 50th anniversary of Antigua Sailing Week, a regatta often referred to as the ‘granddaddy’ of Caribbean sailing events and one of the top five yacht racing regattas in the world alongside Cowes Week and Cork Week. The modern format now has great ‘round the cans’ racing off Falmouth Harbour and a super race village in the beautifully historic Nelson’s Dockyard. Over the past few years we have achieved great results in Antigua Sailing Week; in 2011 our team achieved a fab 3rd in class in race division 5 after a hotly contested battle, we were 5th in 2012/13 and on the podium again in 2014 with 3rd in class as well as a great 2nd in the Yachting World Round Antigua Race. 2015 saw EH01 take a 2nd and Quokka came second in 2016.
Antigua Sailing Week is based in Falmouth Harbour, Antigua. Transport is easy with direct international flights from most major airports via Virgin Atlantic, U.S Airlines, Delta, American Airlines, Continental Airlines or British Airways and a short taxi ride from the airport.

Why we love Antigua Sailing Week
Well, great results like 2nd in class 2015 and 2016 certainly boost our enjoyment of this event! Every year the crew is made up of people like you and we enjoy the fantastic mix of friendly camaraderie and competitive racing that makes this event one of our favourites. The welcome from Antigua is second to none; there are great shore side events with local bands alongside international stars like Maxi Priest and Aswad. The racing is competitive and the setting is fantastic. Strong trade winds and big ocean swell make the racing fast, tough but enjoyable and there is a wealth of international yachts taking part. Throw in wall to wall Caribbean sunshine and a lay-day of relaxing on white sands and dipping your toes in turquoise seas and you have the perfect sailing regatta.
