We are pleased to announce that we are welcoming back "Big Ti" to Regatta, last competing with us in 2014. Also two staysail schooners, 114' Aschanti IV built in 1954 coming all the way from the Pacific to join us to compete with 112' Seljm.

The beautiful Spirt of Tradition 91' wooden yawl Bequia and 141' replica Gloucester fishing schooner Columbia are coming back as well as 100' schooner Ruth from Barbados along with many others too numerous to mention.

See the exciting list of expected entries here. If your yacht is not on the list and you wish to compete or are on the list but won't be joining in this year, please email us on

The Antigua Dragon Yacht Club Challenge is attracting world class sailors from near and far to compete in these sleek and fast 29' Petticrows against the 2019 winner, Rocco Falcone. The Challenge will be overseen by the Dragon World Champion, Poul Hoj Jensen.

Please note that race days are now three days, Friday April 1st to Sunday April 3rd with the prize-giving that evening. Registration day is Wednesday March 30th at the Antigua Yacht Club.

The exquisite Italian watchmaker Locman are donating prizes once again and we are grateful to Antigua Yacht Club Marina for dockage, Mount Gay rum, Carib beer and San Pellegrino for refreshments and to all others sponsors for their valuable contributions. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to Regatta this year and meeting new classic yacht owners.
