There’s no better way to get a first-hand experience of Antigua Sailing Week’s (ASW) races than to actually be out on the water alongside the racing yachts!

From Sunday 28 April  through Thursday 2 May, Chase the Race sets off and returns to Falmouth Harbour so you will be completely immersed in the activities of a typical race day. Without the anxiety of needing to cross the finish line in good time.

Board daily at 9am and head out to the start line of races where you experience the exhilaration of boats as they fight to get the best position before they cross the start line. Then you will be able to spend a couple of hours watching and photographing some of the best sailors in the world pitching their skills against each other.

You will then set off for a beautiful sail along the west coast for a beach stop and be served a delicious Caribbean lunch on board before your boat sets sail back to the docks at around 3 pm. All in time to get to the Antigua Yacht Club for some cold ones and join in the afternoon prize-giving festivities.

All boats have shade, on board toilets, life jackets, trained First Aid personnel and serve unlimited water & drinks.
