This tropical island escape offers turquoise waters, coral reefs, and warm gentle trade winds that make it one of the world’s most desirable sailing locations. And did we mention beaches? Miles and miles of fine white sand as soft as sugar, so many there’s one for every day of the year. You’ll also find lavish resorts, gourmet restaurants, and a laid back island vibe that shines through the smiles of the people who live there. Long coastlines offer an abundance of secluded coves for anchoring, some with a range of water-sports and sophisticated nightlife, others with nothing more than a palm-fringed beach.
Antigua has a rich maritime history, once used as a base for the Royal Navy in the eighteenth century. English Harbour lies on the south side of the island, and is famous for Nelson’s Dockyard where you can see colonial artefacts from the time it was commanded by Admiral Horatio Nelson. This area is now the winter base for superyachts from across the globe. The glittering lights of the yachts at night are a sight to behold, best seen from the cliff top of Shirley Heights. Try to visit on a Sunday afternoon to enjoy sundowners and steel drums followed by the infamous jump up party. Antigua is also home to some of the most prestigious regattas on the sailing circuit including Antigua Race Week, the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta and the RORC Caribbean 600. All of these events are scheduled to go ahead in 2021, so get in touch to find out how you can take part in an exciting regatta charter.
