Cheers for Home Crews at the Classics
Among the stars of the 34th running of the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta in April 2023 was the Caribbean-based fleet. They included Apollonia (BVI), Charm III (Anguilla), Seefalke II (Antigua), Alani (Carriacou), Sea Swan (Grenada), and DC Camp (Antigua). Carriacou sloops included Genesis, Navasana, New Moon, and Free in St. Barth.
The annual gathering of sailors draws participants from across the world to share their passion for racing spectacular classic yachts in Antigua’s superb sailing conditions against the backdrop of historic Nelson’s Dockyard.
Some of the participating vessels date back to the early 1900s, but continued and meticulous maintenance allows them to compete with other, newer yachts built using the original classic designs.
April 17- 22, 2024 is the date of next year’s event. For details and updated photo gallery consult the website (www.antiguaclassics.com).
