Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's learning to dance in the rain

We are delighted to announce that there are no cases of Coronavirus in Antigua at this time. We are therefore continuing with our preparations for the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta, starting on 1 April which is shaping up nicely great entries. We look forward to seeing past participants such as the mighty Ticonderoga, Nordwind and the beautiful Vineyard Haven schooner from Gannon & Benjamin Juno: we have missed you all!

The Historic Class, introduced last year for boats designed/built before 1976, has become very popular now that word has got around, with Swans galore. The Spirit of Tradition class has a new Spirit, Gwenhyfar which will be good competition for Chloe-Giselle. One of the few survivors of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, the classic Russamee, has also signed on.

Our main sponsor Locman Watches will be opening an exclusive store at the Antigua Yacht Club Marina, next to the VIP Locman Lounge. Thanks to sponsor Paul and Shark, all our participants will be clothed in stylish Italian elegance and the Dragons will boast new sails from Zaoli Sails. As usual, the drinks will be flowing thanks to Mount Gay, Carib Beer and our newest sponsor Quinn Rosé.

With Antigua's superb sailing conditions and the unique camaraderie of this wonderful event, coming to take part is really a no-brainer. Serious racing and lots of fun afterwards - see you there in just a few weeks! For further information please email
