This weekend would have found us participating in the official opening of the 53rd edition of Antigua Sailing Week (ASW) and the Peters & May Round Antigua Race Prize Giving to kick off an incredible week of racing.

The inevitable cancellation of the event in light of the global crisis means we are all at home together and following instructions wherever we are in the world to stay safe. Although we can't Race, Chase and Celebrate together we can still have some fun.

Over the next week, join us in recalling your experience of Antigua Sailing Week by posting your ASW event memories to any of our social platforms starting with the English Harbour Rum Neon Rave Party, the Peter's & May Round Antigua Race, the opening parade to the 52nd edition, any of the five race days on and off the water, Reggae in the Park, Wadadli Beer Lay Day and the final award ceremony.

Along with a brief description, don't forget to tag Antigua Sailing Week and include the following hashtags. #celebratingASWathome, #ASW- followed by the year you attended (ASW2019, ASW2018, etc).

Spot prizes will be effect, so be sure to catch our eye with your submissions. And as a reminder our social platforms are below - please link with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone next year April 24 - 30, in fact our provisional schedule is already up and entries are open. Be sure to let us know if you plan to come by putting your entry in as soon as you make a decision.

2020 Memorabilia

We have a limited supply of 2020 branded merchandise which are sure to become a coveted bit of ASW memorabilia. Go to web store where you can purchase the items. Shipping fees are additional and fulfillment will take place once our stay at home orders are lifted.

Antigua Sailing Week is just the beginning

Antigua Sailing Week is just one of main reasons to come visit our Nation of Antigua and Barbuda. Our friends at the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority have put together this Instagram Bingo game for you to see what other attractions make up our island paradise. Have some fun and complete the game.

If for some reason, you realise that you haven't "Attended Antigua Sailing Week" we hope it means you are making plans to. Don't forget to submit your completed game on your IG or FB story, while tagging Antigua Sailing Week and including our hashatags so that we can highlight you! #loveantiguabarbuda #celebratingASWathome
