To be eligible for the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta, all entries should have a full keel, be of moderate to heavy displacement, built of wood or steel, and be of traditional rig and appearance. Old craft restored using modern materials such as epoxy or glass sheathing, or new craft built along the lines of an old design, are acceptable. Vessels built of ferrocement may be accepted if they have a gaff or traditional schooner rig. Fibreglass yachts must have a long keel with a keel-hung rudder and be a descendent of a wooden hull design.
Yachts not fitting into the above categories may nevertheless apply, providing documents, photographs or drawings to support their request for entry in the Spirit of Tradition Class. All entries unknown to the Regatta committee must be accompanied by underwater and rig photographs or drawings, and are subject to approval by the Committee, whose decision is final.
For enquiries please use the button below to email us.
First time entrants fill out a pre-entry form and submit it along with pictures of the hull and rig, if your yacht is approved by the committee, you will be given instructions on how to complete your entry.
All captains must visit the AYC registration desk in Nelson’s Dockyard to confirm arrival and receive current Regatta information. The registration desk will be open on Wednesday April 19th, 2017 from 0800 to 1800 hrs.
