Home » Antigua Sailing Week Win For Dream Yacht Charter

Antigua Sailing Week is over for another year and will be remembered for its usual mix of incredible sailing, exciting racing and lively party atmosphere on shore. Antigua Sailing Week is the Caribbean’s longest running sailing regatta – 2019 marks its 52nd year – and its most prestigious. It is also one of the most loved races in the world with the event attracting entrants from all over the world. This year, teams from 21 different countries competed and the conditions were simply spectacular for the international fleet. The trade winds blew for all six racing days and there were some thrilling contests.

We are proud to announce that Dream Yacht Charter, a long-term official bareboat sponsor, recorded some fantastic results on the leaderboard.

“Congratulations to all those racing in Antigua Sailing Week this year. Fantastic results were achieved and we were pleased to hear that competitors with Dream Yacht Charter boats won first, second and third place in bareboat 3, as well as overall bareboat class. First and third places were also won in the bareboat 2 class.This was thrilling sailing from everyone in a glorious setting. This regatta really is at the heart of Caribbean sailing and a prestigious event.
