There’s no better way to get a first-hand experience of Antigua Sailing Week’s (ASW) races than to actually be out on the water alongside the racing yachts!
ASW offers the opportunity to Chase The Race during every day of racing. Dates are Sunday 28th April, Monday 29th April, Tuesday 30th April, Wednesday 1st May, Thursday 2nd May, Friday 3rd May.
This year Chase the Race sets off and returns to Falmouth Harbour so you will be completely immersed in the activities of a typical race day. Without the stress of having to win!
Board daily at 9am and head out to the start line of races where you experience the exhilaration of boats as they fight to get the best position before they cross the start line. The you will be able to spend a couple of hours watching and photographing some of the best sailors in the world pitching their skills against each other.
You will then set off for a beautiful sail along the coast and enjoy a delicious Caribbean lunch on board before your boat sets sail back to the docks at around 3 pm. All in time to get to the Beer Garden for some cold ones and join in the afternoon prize-giving festivities.
On Wednesday 1st May Lay Day provides a wonderful opportunity for sailors and spectators alike to get together and have fun.
