ANTIGUA SAILING WEEK

ANTIGUA SAILING WEEK

The 2020 edition of Antigua Sailing Week has been cancelled. Stay tuned for details on the 2021 regatta.

Antigua Sailing Week welcomes you to “Race, Chase and Celebrate” in 2020. This world-famous event showcases the most professional racing found anywhere in the Caribbean, yet is also a must-do for cruising and bare-boat crews. With over 100 boats every year it includes everyone, from world class award winning skippers to casual sailors along with their friends who want to join in, cheer them on and have some fun.

Crews keen to get in a little training the day before the official event commences can take part in the Peters & May Round Antigua Race on Saturday the 25th of April. Totally optional, it’s a great opportunity to get a feel for the conditions, and for those looking for a challenge, to break the record currently held by Warrior (USA).                     

Sunday 26th April sees the competition begin in earnest. Sailors are challenged with a variety of race courses off Antigua’s south coast, the ever-present trade winds encouraging tacking duels in the deep blue Caribbean waters. Racing over for the day, the sailors then head to the daily prize giving’s where that days success are recognised.

Spectators are encouraged to get involved too, whether that’s appreciating the action from a bird’s eye vantage point like Shirley Heights or the many hiking trails to viewpoints along the coastline. Daily Chase the Race tours also head out from Falmouth Harbour Marina to the race course to view the on the water battles up close.

Tuesday 28th April will mark the 11th anniversary of Reggae in the Park, the perfect combination of reggae music, an international crowd and iconic venue makes for an unforgettable experience where crews let their hair down and islanders come out to energize this multi-cultural party.

Wednesday 29th April is a scheduled “Lay Day” which means no racing and everyone gets to kick back. Pigeon Point Beach is the perfect venue for a fun Caribbean day, its tranquil white sands livened up with team games, single handed competition and DJs playing until the sunset.
   
After dark, the bars of English Harbour really come alive. Islanders, visitors and sailors all lime together, the local vendors, fine dining restaurants, parties and live music ensuring there’s something for everyone.

Antigua Sailing Week draws to a close in Nelson’s Dockyard. The Final Awards Ceremony on Friday 1st May is undoubtedly the best in the Caribbean, its 50 plus years’ worth of silverware quite a spectacle to see on stage. The after-party is also one to remember with owners, skippers, crew, organisers and islanders all dancing the night away in celebration of another successful Antigua Sailing Week.

The dates are set for the next 3 years, make plans to join us!

2021 - April 24th – April 30th
2022 - April 23rd  – April 29th
2023 - April 22nd – April 28th
