PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITION BY ED GIFFORD
Wednesday 19th April 2023

Images of some of the world’s most revered vintage vessels will be showcased at a special exhibition opening tonight, April 19th, at the National Sailing Academy.

‘Sailing in Antigua’ is a photographic retrospective of the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta documented by acclaimed photographer Edwin Gifford over the past 23 years. It is said to portray “man and woman, boat and sea at their most elemental, dramatic and beautiful”.  Proceeds from the event will be given – fittingly – to the National Sailing Academy, which offers free sailing and swimming instruction to local youngsters. The exhibition will open at the academy on April 19 with a reception from 5.30-8.30pm.

It will be catered by Sandra Folkes-Joseph of the Island Fusion Restaurant and light refreshments and beverages will be served. There will also be a live band performing blues and rock standards.

Gifford, a long-standing and regular Daily Observer contributor, describes Antigua as the world’s best “canvas” for photographing sailing. 

“The fleet of boats, the stunningly blue Caribbean waters, the tremendous trade winds, the incredible, vibrant light and of course the top shelf and superb local sailors make Antigua a photographer’s paradise,” he said.
