Guadeloupe to Antigua Race @ Deshaies, Guadeloupe
Apr 24 all-day

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. For more information click here! The Prize Giving follows at 5.30pm at the Presidente Beer Garden at Antigua Yacht Club.
