The last racing day for the Antigua Classic Regatta had lighter winds with intervals of squally blustery conditions and heavy down pours. With a mixture of weather conditions throughout the race made interesting results for the last day.

This regatta has to be one of the best fun on the racing circuit, lots of amazing entertainment each night from open mic to sea shanties to acrobatics aloft to movies screenings of documentary film Vanishing Sail.

Its a great event to do in the Caribbean and if you have a classic yacht, spirit of tradition or a classic GRP like we have, then its a must on the calendar. The starts are spacious, plenty of room out on the water and we're racing with beautiful yachts such as Mary Rose, Columbia, Aschanti, Mah Jong, Ruth and not to forget the Carriacou sloops which have a huge following, Genesis, Free of St Barths, Sweatheat.

If you can't get your boat there, volunteer your services with the race committee, help is always gratefully accepted and it's a great way to get involved, so here's to the 2019 Classic Antigua Regatta held on April 17th-23rd 2019.

RACE 4 - Windward

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.
