Antigua Rainforest, Stingray City and Shirley Heights Lookout are assisting with the entertainment of our visitors when there is no racing and Wadadli Cats will be taking spectators out to the race course off English Harbour.
The Government, through the Ministries of Tourism, of Finance and of Sport, are facilitating the running of the Championships in numerous ways including by supplying transport, relief from duties and taxes and assisting with other items such as shipping and clearance.
These championships are a template for future similar events and Antigua knows how to put on a good sailing event. This one will be extra special.
