Opportunity to race a TP52!
Antigua Sailing Week is celebrating its 50th edition from April 29 – May 5, 2017 and a bumper turn out of exciting boats is anticipated. There are still four months before the start of the historic celebrations, and already 75 yachts from 20 different countries have entered and will be gracing Antigua’s world class race tracks. Shoreside will be a non-stop party atmosphere featuring beach parties, live music, the Lay Day Beach Party featuring the Nonsuch Bay RS Elite Challenge, and the fabled Antigua Sailing Week Final Awards Ceremony and After Party.
Antigua Sailing Week is a truly international regatta, in no small part because the racing takes place in one of the world’s finest locations with trade winds, legendary Antigua surf and stunning vistas – there is no other race venue that has all of these fine ingredients and in recent years the organisers have stepped up race management significantly with exciting courses and top class race officials. Of the early entries, the largest is Sir Peter Harrison’s British 115-foot ketch, Sojana, a previous Lord Nelson Trophy winner who will also be back to defend the record in the Peters & May Round Antigua Race – and they’re looking for competition to challenge the record. The Peters & May Round Antigua Race is open to all boats including those not participating in the full week of racing.
