Antigua Sailing Week is delighted to announce Sunsail is back on board as the official bareboat charter sponsor of Antigua Sailing Week 2015, set for April 25th - May 1st 2015. This is the fourth year running that Sunsail has been involved as a sponsor and of its partnership, head of marketing for North and South America Brittany Weatherby says: "Antigua Sailing Week is one of the premier regattas in the Caribbean which our customers love to attend. With the changes in race format over the past few years, it is on many clients' bucket list of must do regattas because of the great mix of superb sailing, excellent class and course management and of course the parties that accompany the event each night. We are happy to continue to support this great week of racing."
 
Antigua Sailing Week features a number of bareboat classes that allow charterers to compete fairly with similar boats. Increasingly, the bareboat fleet consists of serious race charterers, many of whom have excellent class records who enter to have fun and, in some cases are with us for the first time to enjoy a once in a lifetime experience. Naturally of course, everyone is in it to win. Boat owners and crews from around the world fly to Antigua for the week to compete without the hassle and expense of bringing their own boats. There is a large fleet of Sunsail 44i's entered in Antigua Sailing Week every year which provides highly competitive racing in a one-design bareboat class. Many serious sailors enjoy the tough competition in this class as the racing is always very close.
 
As an entrant in Antigua Sailing Week you can choose to stay on board or book accommodation locally meaning that it really is a hassle free experience. The entire Sunsail fleet based in Antigua is now booked but of boat availability, Chairman of the Regatta Organising Committee Kathy Lammers says: "We are now working on availability of boats from other Caribbean Sunsail bases to ensure that we can satisfy the demand for bareboat charters for Antigua Sailing Week, with this year looking to be the largest fleet in many years. For those who are able to take a vacation longer than the week needed to enjoy Antigua Sailing Week to the fullest, there is also the opportunity to fly into another island and sail your boat to Antigua to race, and then sail back again while enjoying the opportunity to cruise to other islands as part of your itinerary."
 
And as if you need further incentive, Sunsail will be awarding a voucher worth US $2,500 towards a future Sunsail charter to the overall winner of the bareboat classes at the final awards ceremony to be held in Nelson's Dockyard on Friday, May 1, 2015.
 
To book your charter now visit www.sunsail.com/ASW and if you can't find a boat available, please call the sales office so that they can find one on a nearby island for you.
