World Class Racing
With a blend of blue water, warm, steady trade winds, and seemingly endless harbors to explore, Antigua is a fantastic yachting and sailing destination. Here in Antigua we even have our own version of The America’s Cup – Antigua Sailing Week.
Sailing Week is one of the world’s foremost sailing events and is renowned for world-class racing and all-night partying. It takes place from April 26, 2014 through May 2, 2014.
This year 21 different countries will bring their yachts to compete in the regatta’s 46th anniversary, with thrills and spills guaranteed! Antigua’s Sailing Week has consistently graced international sailing aficionados’ calendars. Some of the races in this year’s regatta schedule include the Guadeloupe to Antigua Race, the Yachting World Round Antigua Race, and the English Harbour Rum Runner.
Throughout the island there will also be numerous parties. Ask our Concierge and he’ll be sure to point you in the right direction.
If you feel you’ve had too much of the regattas you can always return home to Jolly Beach Resort. Here, even when the sea may be rough, our beach is stunning and calm and the water is super refreshing. If you don’t feel like participating in the week’s after-hours’ parties, Jolly Beach Resort also has nightly entertainment, including a casino, shows, and dancing.
