ANTIGUA CLASSIC YACHT REGATTA SUPPORTS YACHTING WORLD ROUND ANTIGUA RACE
Wednesday 14th March 2012

As you know, Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta takes place from Thursday, April 19 to Tuesday, April 24, 2012.  Following on from the Classic Yacht Regatta, on Saturday, April 28 an exciting new event will take place - the Yachting World Round Antigua Race.  Formerly a part of Antigua Sailing Week, the race has been re-introduced as an optional race open to all boats.  Classes will include maxi, racing, cruising, multihull, bareboat and classics among others, so yachts of all types are expected to participate including many classics as well as those that will go on to participate in Antigua Sailing Week.

Yachting World is once again proud to sponsor the Round Antigua Race and will award the beautiful and much-coveted Yachting World Trophy to the elapsed time winner.  The record is currently held by the overall winner of Antigua Sailing Week 2011, the Farr-designed 115-foot Sojana, which completed the race in 4 hours, 37 minutes and 43 seconds in 2009.  Will you be the new record-holder?

The prize giving for the Yachting World Round Antigua Race will take place at the Antigua Sailing Week Welcome Party in historic Nelsons Dockyard at 7 pm on Saturday, April 28.

As the first Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta was held 25 years ago when it was decided that classic yachts were more suited to different courses than those raced in Antigua Sailing Week, it is fitting that for the 25th annual event, classic yachts will be back on the water with boats that will participate in Antigua Sailing Week.
