Antigua Sailing Week wraps up on the dance floor

Reggae Party


May 10, 2018

The 2018 Reggae party took over!

One hundred and sixteen teams from 37 different countries raced in the 51st edition of Antigua Sailing Week including seven wearing Canadian colours. Strong trade winds blew all week delivering heaven-sent conditions to over 1,000 competitors. Peter Harrison’s superyacht Sojana was awarded the coveted Lord Nelson Trophy after a perfect scoreline.

Parties are actually the first order of business in Antigua so over 3,000 revellers attended Reggae in the Park, featuring international reggae artist Tarrus Riley. Here’s a video capturing the flavour of this great event


Entry is now open for the 52nd edition of Antigua Sailing Week, which will take place from 27th April to the 3rd May 2019.
