Qualifying events will take place this coming weekend, October 16th and October 30th, which promises to be hotly contested races.

Marketing Director, Mark Whinney says, “We are delighted to extend our sponsorship of Antigua Sailing Week for another year. The regatta has undergone a metamorphosis over the last few years. Our association with Antigua Sailing Week means that we are able to reach a wider audience of potential visitors to Antigua and be part of what is an excellent opportunity to market our destination to the world.”
