2018 Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta – Ready and Waiting to Welcome You
As the Mediterranean and U.S. East coast sailing season draws to a close, many of our friends in the yachting world are once again considering the Caribbean for the winter. All of you will have heard about the recent devastation caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria to our neighbouring islands in the region.
Commodore of the Antigua Yacht Club and President of the Antigua and Barbuda Marine Association Franklyn Braithwaite has this to say: “Many people have been in touch to check that Antigua is still up and running. We thank them immensely for their concern for our island; we have been lucky. Many people have asked how they can help the affected islands. My best advice is to come to the region in the coming season as planned. I have told people not to change their plans, register early for events and come and enjoy their favourite yachting destinations. That will ensure that our economies continue to receive much needed support throughout the regatta season.”
The Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta team is busy developing the 2018 version of our unique event where the most beautiful vintage, classic and traditional yachts gather in friendly competition!
We look forward to welcoming you!
