Antigua Sailing Week is held annually at the end of April with the 50th edition in 2017. It is considered to be one of the Caribbean's most prestigious regattas with more than 100 yachts participating annually. The event is centered around five days of competitive racing off the rugged south coast of Antigua.
Since 2016 Peters & May has been the official shipping and logistics partner working with the Minister of Tourism and key industry stakeholders, as well as the Port Authority and the Antigua and Barbuda Marine Association to ensure a personal and professional service is delivered to all clients.
New in 2017, Peters & May were the sponsor of the Round Antigua Race to be known as the 'Peters & May Round Antigua Race'. The optional race on the first Saturday, is open to all boats, whether or not participating in Antigua Sailing Week, including classic boats finishing their season following Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta, and boats in Antigua in advance of the Antigua to Bermuda Race in May.
Discount for ASW competitors
As a proud sponsor, Peters & May offers a participant shipping discount for any boats fully entered for Antigua Sailing Week, with a further discount for a round-trip transatlantic shipment.
Getting To and From the Caribbean
We recognized some years ago the importance of yacht transport options to and from Antigua, especially at the end of the season after Antigua Sailing Week, to provide yacht owners with an option to ship their boats from Antigua to their next destination following the close of the Caribbean season. We work alongside Peters & May with the Minister of Tourism and key industry stakeholders, as well as the Port Authority and the Antigua and Barbuda Marine Association to determine how we can deliver the best service for our visiting yachts. We are therefore delighted that Peters & May is backing us and extending its commitment to Antigua Sailing Week.
