Tour Details

Over the last two decades, Antigua Sailing Week has become one of the biggest events in the international sailing calendar. It attracts some of the top Olympic yachtsmen in the world, giving us the opportunity to compete against them. It is also one of the most fantastic ways to visit Antigua and take advantage of an island-wide party.

Consisting of six challenging days of top class racing, in what are regarded as the best sailing conditions in the world, the regatta has developed into a world-class event and now includes an Ocean Series for boats that prefer ocean racing.

This yachting regatta started from small beginnings back in 1967 when Peter Deeth, who owned the Inn Hotel at English Harbour and Desmond Nicholson, owner of the Admiral’s Inn formed a racing club. They met every Sunday morning and raced their Sailfish. The Club had no finances in the beginning so relied entirely on people’s voluntary help. Later as finances improved and interest grew, the Club got planning permission for a Club House to be built at Falmouth Harbour. In 1972 the club announced its new name of “The Antigua Yacht Club”. Things have moved on fairly quickly since then!

The Island will be alive with carnivals, music and parties over the island during this time.
