ALL SET FOR ANTIGUA SAILING WEEKWednesday 26th April 2023
The 54th edition of Antigua Sailing Week is all set with the famous regatta’s on-the-water action kicking off with a spectacular curtain raiser on Saturday 29 April; the stand-alone Peters & May Round Antigua Race. Five days of red-hot racing follow for Antigua Sailing Week, with legendary shoreside celebrations and daily prize givings. New to the race programme for 2023 will be the Antigua Wing Foil Championships with two days of in-harbour racing and a one-day downwinder on Lay Day, as well an RS Elite One Design class.
Antigua Sailing Week is a melting pot of nations; boats from 18 countries are competing at the 54th edition. Sailors come from all-over the world to experience Antigua & Barbuda, a spectacular Caribbean destination surrounded by world class sailing waters. The racing is not the only source of fun and thrills, shoreside the party-scene after racing is renowned. By mid-regatta, the Reggae in the Park live gig is followed by all the laughter you can handle on Pigeon Point Beach for Lucky Eddi's Lay Day. The Final Prize Giving in Nelson’s Dockyard is always a memorable night! Taking a bow on the main stage by winning your class at Antigua Sailing Week is the aim, but it’s also the pathway to the ultimate goal, the big one - lifting the Lord Nelson Trophy.
Jaime Torres, Antigua Sailing Week Race Manager is ready to welcome sailors from around the globe, as well as closer to home to this bucket-list Caribbean regatta. “With a very good forecast and so many great racing boats we are looking forward to some very close racing. The boats in most divisions are very evenly matched and have very narrow rating bands. It will be a superb regatta and grand finale to the 2023 Caribbean racing season.”
