April – May 2014
For many people, Antigua Sailing Week is all about the food, especially the vendors who ensure hungry sailors and islanders get to eat until late into the night in an authentic street atmosphere. Come and support them on their first night.
Open each night from Thursday 25th April to Saturday 3rd May 2014.
Every year Antigua Sailing Week features a Guadeloupe to Antigua Race on the Friday before the week’s racing begins. The event is organised in conjunction with Antigua Yacht Club and serves as a feeder race for boats coming from the islands to the south of Antigua. However, many boats already in Antigua preparing for the week-long regatta often take this opportunity to head south to Guadeloupe specifically to participate in this annual race.
