The Antigua Island Girls rowing team has made history by winning the prestigious Forerunner Award at the Caribbean-American Heritage Awards in Washington D.C.

The team, comprising of Christal Clashing, Kevinia Francis, and Samara Emmanuel, was recognized for their unparalleled achievement in rowing across two oceans.

The event marked an incredible milestone for the team, and their accomplishment has been described as nothing short of extraordinary.

What’s even more impressive is that the Antigua Island Girls are the only Caribbean-origin recipients who are not based in the United States, highlighting the international scope and impact of their feat.

The award was presented by Sir Ronald Sanders, Antigua and Barbuda’s Ambassador to the United States, who declared that the team had carved their names in history with every stroke across the treacherous waters.

The Ambassador further remarked that the Antigua Island Girls’ journey represents a testament to the power of determination, teamwork, and relentless pursuit of dreams. Their achievement is a remarkable recognition of their extraordinary efforts, and their work bears national, international, and historic significance.

The Forerunner Award is bestowed by the Institute of Caribbean Studies and recognizes those who achieve extraordinary feats that are not only uncommon and unusual but may never be replicated.

This year’s award coincided with the 30th anniversary of the Institute, and the gala was attended by hundreds of high achievers from the Caribbean community in the United States, making it an event to remember.
