The Grand Prize - Road to 2020

The grand prize promotion on the Road to 2020 will culminate this month with the announcement of the winners in the final battle of the Royal Southern Summer Series and the Interboot Trophy Antigua Barbuda Challenge. Team members from Antigua Sailing Week will be present at both events to award the prizes to the lucky winners.

The Royal Southern Yacht Club has already hosted three of four races in a summer series to determine who will be awarded the coveted prize of bareboat entry into Antigua Sailing Week. The fourth and final showdown takes place this weekend September 14 on the waters of the Solent, UK. If the opportunity sounds too exciting to miss, you can still enter here.

The Interboot Trophy Antigua Barbuda Challenge being hosted by the W├╝rttembergischer Yacht Club on spectacular Lake Constance, Germany will include J70's in a one day battle on the September 21, for the chance to win week-long bareboat access during Antigua Sailing Week 2020. The prize-giving will be further enhanced by a pop up Reggae in the Park celebration party complete with English Harbour Rum. There's still time to enter to race during this exciting weekend.

The Grand Prize

In addition to the bareboat from Dream Yacht Charter the prize also includes flights to Antigua plus dockage in UNESCO heritage Nelson's Dockyard which is the perfect base for participants and spectators both as a great marina and as an entertainment venue.

Team August Sky, skippered by Phil Walters of the Lloyd Harbour/ Centerport Yacht Club were the first winners of the summers promotions held in Sag Harbour, USA this past August will be joined by these two crews to participate in Antigua Sailing Week.

A huge thank you to Antigua & Barbuda Tourism, Dream Yacht Charter, English Harbour Rum, National Parks Authority, Breakwater Yacht Club, Royal Southern Yacht Club and W├╝rttembergischer Yacht Club for their participation in this invitational series.
