Friday, May 17, 2019 9:37 AM
This series of invitational regattas across UK, USA and Germany offers Corinthian, yacht club and amateur sailors the opportunity to win the adventure of a lifetime with an all expenses paid trip to experience Antigua Sailing Week.
The first in the UK series is this weekend May 18-19 at the Royal Southern Yacht Club followed by three more events in June, July and September. Antigua Sailing Week race manager Lorna Saunders will be on hand at this weekends event in Hamble to answer questions about participation in this grandaddy of Caribbean regattas. And it would not be a bonafide Caribbean event without rum, so we will be serving up English Harbour 5 year old Rum mixed with Fever-Tree ginger beer for the Perfect Storm. The final September event of the summer series will see the winner awarded their prizes.
Other locations to participate and win:
USA - Antigua & Barbuda Hamptons Challenge on August 10 -
GERMANY - Antigua & Barbuda Interboot Trophy Challenge on September 21
The promotion has been made possible through the collaboration of The Royal Southern Yacht Club and ASW Sponsors - Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority, English Harbour

Following that will be five days of competitive racing off the rugged south coast of Antigua, which will wrap up on Friday, May 1, 2020.
