The magical combination of serious racing, laid-back Antiguan hospitality, plenty of rum, sunshine, and great camaraderie in a friendly relaxed atmosphere, places the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta in a class of its own.
“Antigua Classics is an amazingly broad church bringing together multi-million dollar vintage beauties varnished to mirrored perfection with 1960s ocean racers and, at the other end of the scale, the Carriacou Sloops. Thats the magic of it. If you put only one international regatta on your bucket list, make it this one.”
