NEW DOUBLE-HANDED CLASS TO FEATURE AT ANTIGUA SAILING WEEK
Monday 23rd July 2018

In view of the ever growing demand for double-handed racing, the organisers of Antigua Sailing Week (ASW) are pleased to announce 2019 will benefit from the addition of a new double-handed class.  Double-handed racing by its nature is all about crew stamina and how to pace yourself. With only two crew on board, both must be good all-rounders and understand the trade-off between pace, performance and physical demands.

Race manager Lorna Saunders says, "This will add an exciting new dimension to ASW. Safety being paramount, the double handed class will have its own start and courses will be carefully planned to accommodate double handed participants. The courses will be a mix of round the cans, with slightly longer legs and some days a coastal race. We look forward to thrilling, competitive sailing."

Antigua Sailing Week takes place from 28 April to 3 May and the Notice of Race is now available.  An optional Round Antigua Race takes place on the 27April, which will also offer a double handed class, and is the perfect warm up event prior to the five challenging days of Antigua Sailing Week where everyone is invited to race, chase and celebrate.
 
The professional race management team will continue to offer exciting racing for participants who range from fully professional campaigns to crews of family and friends.

Bareboat and mothership charters can all be arranged through our sponsor Dream Yacht Charter plus numerous race charter options are available from reputable partners.
