Friends Of ASW

With the importance of Antigua Sailing Week to the national economy of Antigua and Barbuda and as the anchor event at the end of the Caribbean season it creates vital revenues for the entire island which assists in businesses being able to support themselves over the long summer period. The cancellation of the 2020 event hit the not for profit organisation and the island hard. In order to assist in creating a safe and exciting 2021 event the organisers are launching a ‘Friends of ASW’ programme.

Individual Race Supporter – US$200 – A critical element of our event is ensuring the safety of all participants on the water. The monies raised will be allocated to payment to the support boats and ABSAR all essential in ensuring the courses are managed safely. As a supporter you will be recognised with an official Race Supporter T-shirt . The T-shirts will be available for pick up or mailing in November 2020.

Individual Chasers – US$300 – Many people enjoy chasing the race during ASW with Wadadli Cats. 2021 will be no exception although less people will be allowed to be on each boat in order to ensure adherence to social distancing. The money raised will be allocated towards the charter of the catamarans to ensure the trip can go ahead. As a Chaser you will be recognized with an official Chase T-shirt as well as a ticket to enjoy chase the race on any day of ASW 2021. The T-shirts will be available for pick up mailing in November 2020.

Corporate Regatta Supporter – US$2500 –A tradition of Antigua Sailing Week is the pewter mug which is awarded to first, second and third in every class.  And one of the most important parts of delivering ASW is the huge mainly volunteer team who work tirelessly in planning and delivering the event. The monies raised will be allocated to purchase of 60 class pewter mugs, SWAT  (Sailing Week Antigua Team) Tee-shirts and tool kits needed to do their jobs.  As a thank you, corporate supporters will have their logo added to the official SWAT Tee-shirts as well as to the supporter page of the website. In addition each Corporate Regatta  Supporter will receive their own pewter mug specifically engraved with Supporter ASW 2021 . The mugs will be available for pick up or mailing in March 2021.

Corporate Sponsorships are available starting at US$5000.  For more details email cd@sailingweek.com.
