Cancellation of Antigua Sailing Week

As a result of national and global measures being taken to contain the COVID-19 pandemic and the priority being the health & safety of our citizens, competitors, spectators and volunteers, the decision to cancel Antigua Sailing Week is the only viable option.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported the event and worked diligently behind the scenes towards creating what was to be a remarkable edition. Now more than ever, we are committed to building on this unfortunate turn of events for a phenomenal 2021 event.

If you are a registered participant with a boat in the region and in need of advice for onward logistics we are standing by, available to assist you.

Please note that we will be reaching out to registered participants, sponsors and the Sailing Week team over the next week.

In the meantime, we urge you to stay safe, follow government health directives, and do everything in your power to reduce the risk of infection to yourself and those around you.
