PLANS PROGRESS FOR ANTIGUA SAILING WEEK 2021 Monday 19th October 2020
We hope that this newsletter meets you safe and thriving wherever you are. Here in Antigua, the Sailing Week Team are hard at work planning ASW 2021. With some modifications to our usual social programs we will be able to conduct safe, competitive racing during the week of April 24 - 30, in fact our provisional schedule has been set and we have 70 entries which include some rolled over from last year.
We make all plans with YOU in mind, so we are also collaborating with other regional regattas via the Caribbean Sailing Association to discuss viable measures to allow a level of safe enjoyment once daily racing is completed. Together we have designed a survey to assess the interest of participants worldwide and regionally to race in Caribbean Regattas in the 2021 season.
We would appreciate it if you could take a moment to complete the survey via this link here.
Over the upcoming period, we plan to continue sharing updates over our many communication channels. We'd love to hear about measures you've experienced in other events that heightened your sense of safety. Please free to share those ideas with our logistics team for consideration.
If you've already made a decision to join us at ASW we would appreciate if you can enter as soon as a decision is made as this will assist us in our planning. If you have entered or plan to and would like to pay for your entry, payments up January 3rd, 2021 are US$11 per foot, except Club Class which is US$7 per foot.

ARE YOU A FRIEND OF ASW YET?
The Friends of ASW fundraising campaign continues and as token of our appreciation we are creating a custom printed t-shirt to share with everyone who has extended the gesture of friendship with a donation. We are grateful to the individuals who have pledged their support so far. If you missed the initial fundraising launch, there are still opportunities to give as CHASE supporters & CORPORATE regatta supporters.
PETERS & MAY MONTHLY TRANSPORT FROM USA
Great news for our US based readers who are seriously contemplating spending the 2021 winter season in safe Caribbean waters. A recently announced partnership from ASW sponsor Peters & May & Oslo Bulk will provide monthly yacht transport between the US East Coast and the Caribbean. Two shippings are already scheduled from Newport in November and December - both with loading in Bahamas and Florida Keys. See the complete itinerary on our website.
