PREVIEW OYSTER REGATTA ANTIGUA
Thursday 10th April 2014

An impressive fleet of 35 Oyster Yachts, flying the flags of Brazil, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and the United States of America have gathered in Antigua, West Indies for the 33rd Oyster Regatta.

Following the conclusion of the Oyster World Rally, the beginning of the Oyster Regatta and more Oyster Yachts cruising in Antigua, there are 60 Oyster Yachts currently in Antigua. The largest collection of Oysters in the 40 year history of Oyster Yachts. Nelson's Dockyard in English Harbour is the hub for the regatta and 12 different examples of the distinctive Oyster range are dockside. Oyster owners, their families and guests are looking forward to an exclusive sailing event blended with fabulous parties at some of the island's best locations.

The Oyster Regatta Antigua six-day programme includes four days of racing on the spectacular coastline of the south and east coast line of Antigua. Warm Trade Winds and ocean swell combine with amazing scenery to provide one of the world's finest sailing locations.

Oyster regattas are organised exclusively for owners and their guests and besides well-managed racing, the fleet benefits from Oyster's renowned customer service and technical support, provided by experienced Oyster staff and their regatta partners; Dolphin Sails, Lewmar, Pantaenius, Pelagos Yachts, Formula Masts, Raymarine and Reckman.

The Georgia dock at English Harbour is a hive of activity today, as owners and crews meticulously prepare their yachts for the Concours d'Elegance judging. Fabulous social events are a key feature of every Oyster Regatta and tonight's Cocktail Party at The Admiral's Inn will be a fitting venue, flanked by the magnificent Oyster fleet.

Racing starts on Tuesday 8th April with a coastal race finishing in Carlisle Bay. After racing the Oyster fleet will anchor off the exclusive Carlisle Bay Resort. Set between tropical rainforest and powder-soft sands, over 250 Oyster owners and guests will enjoy a Cocktail Party and BBQ Buffet dinner.
