Antigua Sailing Week runs from April 30 – May 5. Well over 100 yachts are expected, ranging in size from 24 feet to over 100 feet, and encompassing all types of yachts from serious racing boats to a variety of cruising boats—it even features a club class for less serious racers who want to be part of the on-the-water action.
