The organisers of Antigua Sailing Week would also like to thank the many businesses and individuals who provide invaluable support to Antigua Sailing Week in the lead up to and during the event.  Without the generosity and assistance of those businesses and individuals, Antigua Sailing Week would not be able to happen.
