Antigua Sailing Week regatta, often referred to as the ‘granddaddy’ of Caribbean sailing events, is one of the top five yacht racing regattas in the world alongside Cowes Week and Cork Week. The modern format now has great ‘round the cans’ racing off Falmouth Harbour and a super race village in the beautifully historic Nelson’s Dockyard. Over the past few years we have achieved great results in Antigua Sailing Week. In 2017 Global Yacht Racing achieved a 3rd in class in race division 5 and in 2015 EH01 took a 2nd. 2014 saw us on the podium once more with 3rd in class as well as a great 2nd in the Yachting World Round Antigua Race.
Antigua Sailing Week is based in Falmouth Harbour, Antigua. Transport is easy with direct international flights from most major airports via Virgin Atlantic, U.S Airlines, Delta, American Airlines, Continental Airlines or British Airways and a short taxi ride from the airport.

Two days of race training and coaching from one of our top skippers in the lead up to the Antigua Sailing Week regatta will make the team confident and ready to race. They include all yacht costs and organise every detail of the race entry and yacht preparation so you can concentrate on learning new skills and becoming part of an enthusiastic team.
Every year our crew is made up of people like you. We enjoy the fantastic international mix of friendly camaraderie and competitive racing that makes this event one of our favourites. The welcome from Antigua is second to none; there are great shore side events with local bands alongside international stars. The racing is competitive and the setting is fantastic. Strong trade winds and big ocean swell make the racing fast, tough but enjoyable and there is a wealth of international yachts taking part. Throw in wall to wall Caribbean sunshine and a lay-day of relaxing on white sands and dipping your toes in turquoise seas and you have the perfect sailing regatta.
