CHARTER IN ANTIGUA FOR SAILING WEEK 2012
Monday 9th January 2012

 


With just four months to go to the start of the Caribbean’s most prestigious regatta, there is still time and opportunity to enjoy the delights of Antigua Sailing Week.  Awe-inspiring race courses coupled with a fantastic social scene make Antigua Sailing Week irresistible to sailors from all over the world.
 
Yacht charter for Antigua Sailing Week is very much available for groups and individuals with a variety of yachts and packages to choose from. Antigua Sailing Week Gold Sponsor, Sunsail, has announced that due to unprecedented demand it is making more boats available with a special New Year offer exclusively for Antigua Sailing Week. UK Bareboat Yacht Charter is available from just £1,023 per person including flights and transfers Tel: 0844 463 6594. USA Bareboat Yacht Charter is available from just $349 per person per day Tel: 1-800-772-3500.

Simon Conder, Head of Marketing for Sunsail said, “Antigua Sailing Week is undoubtedly one of the ‘must do’ events on the racing calendar and we are delighted to be working with Antigua Sailing Week as a Gold Sponsor for this premier yachting event.  Experienced sailors can self-skipper (bareboat charter) a yacht and plan their own itinerary to include race practice before the regatta; or beginners can sail with a hired skipper for a more relaxed racing experience.”
 
London-based Chartered Surveyor, Stewart Reed, will be returning to Antigua Sailing Week after a long absence, as he explains. “Like many sailors of my generation, raising a family and business commitments have meant that it is 20 years since I have been to Antigua Sailing Week. But this year will mark my 50th birthday and my close friend Rudy Jurg will be 40, so we decided to celebrate in style with a group of good friends. Roger Garnett at Tenrag looked into all the options for us and we decided on a Jenneau Sun Odyssey 44i from Sunsail. The main reason for the choice is that we will be up against boats of similar speed, so our performance will be just about how well we sail, rather than any other factor. Also, at the moment there are very good deals on flights to Antigua and it’s a real advantage to fly direct from the UK. I can taste the rum and Ting just thinking about it! I am sure we are in for a very memorable celebration.”
 
More information about all of Sunsail’s packages can be found at www.sunsail.com, or for anyone going to the London Boat Show from today or the Toronto Boat Show next week, head to the Sunsail stand and have a chat with the teams to work out the best options for you.
In addition to Sunsail, for individuals or small groups looking to come and enjoy Antigua Sailing Week, there are over 30 options listed on the official Antigua Sailing Week website which offer a wide range of packages.
 
Chairman of the Regatta Organising Committee, Kathy Lammers, said: ‘The fantastic thing about the charter options available is that they really do cater to the needs of all types of sailor.  As well as bareboat and skippered charters, another great option is head boats where each crew members buys his or her space on board.  It’s an incredible vacation where whatever your race experience, you compete as a team and come away with a group of new friends.’
