More than 65 teams from all over the world have already committed to the 51st edition of Antigua Sailing Week. Many more are expected and it's not too late to join them. There are still single places and whole yacht charters available. Backed by Dream Yacht Charter and Virgin Atlantic, there are some fantastic New Year deals, and independent charter firms offer a myriad of options to experience the Caribbean's most famous regatta.

Virgin Atlantic is the Official Exclusive UK Airline sponsor of Antigua Sailing Week and operates three flights weekly between Antigua and London Gatwick flying Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.

“Virgin Atlantic is pleased to offer preferred rates to family, friends and participants travelling to Antigua from London Gatwick for Antigua Sailing Week 2018,” commented Sean Edwards, Virgin Atlantic Regional Business Development Manager – Caribbean.
To take advantage of the offer, email caribcorporates@fly.virgin.com with your preferred travel dates, cabin of your choice and quote promo code ‘ASW2018’.

Dream Yacht Charter is the world’s largest charter company with over 900 yachts in 45+ destinations worldwide including Antigua Slipway, English Harbour, Antigua.

"Bareboats for Antigua Sailing Week have been booking up fast and availability is now getting tight," commented Dan Lockyer, Dream Yacht Charter General Manager, North America. "We are relocating boats to Antigua from other bases and we do have boats available, but if you are thinking about racing in the Bareboat fleet, it would be advisable to book up very soon so that we can meet the demand." Motherships are also available as race fleet bases or for cruisers who like the idea of being in the middle of the action but not racing.
