Alumni Classic Yacht Regatta VoyageFalmouth, Antigua
7 days racing aboard S/Y Ocean Star
In the 1960's, the classic yachts which were based in English Harbour, Antigua, celebrated the end of the charter season by challenging each other to a race down to Guadeloupe and back. Antigua Race Week had been born!
In those days, all of the yachts were classics, yet over the years, the faster, sleeker modern racing yachts started to dominate. A new event was needed and the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta was created in 1988.
Today, Classic Week hosts between 50 and 60 yachts every year and enjoys a wonderful variety of competitors including traditional craft from the islands, classic ketches, sloops, schooners, and yawls, together with the stunningly beautiful J Class yachts and Tall Ships. This makes for a wonderful spectacle of sail, in the ideal trade wind sailing conditions of the Caribbean. The sailing combined with Antiguan hospitality, sunshine and great camaraderie places the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta in a class of its own.
Included in our standard fees:
This will be Ocean Star's third entrance into Classic Week and those signing aboard will become part of the racing crew, sharing in all of the responsibilities of running the vessel including sail setting, trimming and striking, anchoring and docking as well as engineering checks and even helping to clean the decks once the race is complete. On one day it may even be your turn to help make lunch! Join the crew and experience one of the world's most prestigious yachting events firsthand.
