Antigua and Barbuda’s Minister of Tourism, the Honourable Asot Michael, adds:  ‘The support that the Government has provided directly to Antigua Sailing Week and assisted in securing through third parties has been significant this year. This will go a long way to ensuring the sustainability and success of our signature yachting event.’

During the event, the Group will bring back the prestigious Captain's Cocktail party and gala dinner at a private location for owners, skippers and their guests. Along with the other VIPs,  they will be invited to a very special evening following the Group's official ground breaking ceremony earlier the same day.
