Eighteen countries are competing at the 54th edition of the Antigua Sailing Week and sailors are coming from all over the world to experience Antigua & Barbuda.
The famous regatta’s on-the-water action kicks off with what organizers say is a 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 giving. 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,” according to a statement from the organizers.
Antigua Sailing Week Race Manager Jaime Torres, 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,” he said
