Regattas

Long famous for Antigua Sailing Week and Classic Yacht Regatta, in recent years Antigua added the RORC Caribbean 600 to its annual events and over the past four years has, three times, hosted Optimist Dinghy Championships from the fabulous setting of Nelson’s Dockyard, now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

So successful was the first hosting of the North American Optimist Dinghy Championships in 2015, that the competitors clamoured to come back again in 2016. These two events were followed by Antigua & Barbuda winning the right to host the 2019 World Championships against competition from China, Sri Lanka and Tunisia.

Now well practised in the organisation of Optimist dinghy racing, the event for boys and girls aged 8 to 15, staged in the bumpy waters outside English Harbour, was heralded an outstanding success. As usual there was some first class photography from Matias Capizzano - https://capizzano.photoshelter.com

A full list of Antigua’s yachting and sailing events can be found below. Many of the 2020 events from March onwards have been cancelled or postponed of course as the whole world struggles with the Coronavirus pandemic but we will make any updates as events get nearer.

The Caribbean Sailing Association has released its 5 year calendar for the Caribbean wide regatta season. See the full calendar HERE.
