Reggae Party

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
