Guadeloupe to Antigua Race @ Deshaies, Guadeloupe
Apr 22 – Apr 23 all-day

Every year Antigua Sailing Week features a Guadeloupe to Antigua Race on the Friday before the week’s racing begins. The event is organised in conjunction with Antigua Yacht Club and serves as a feeder race for boats coming from the islands to the south of Antigua. However, many boats already in Antigua preparing for the week-long regatta often take this opportunity to head south to Guadeloupe specifically to participate in this annual race. For more information click here! The Prize Giving follows at 5:00pm at the Presidente Beer Garden at Antigua Yacht Club.

Guadeloupe to Antigua Race
Apr 28 @ 9:00 am
Guadeloupe to Antigua Race @ Deshaies | Basse-Terre | Guadeloupe

The Guadeloupe to Antigua Race is a tradition that existed even before Antigua Sailing Week began 50 years
ago, and is organised in conjunction with Antigua Yacht Club and the Triskell Organisation in Guadeloupe.

The 42-nautical mile event provides great racing and an opportunity to enjoy the warm hospitality of the
event’s hosts in Guadeloupe, Triskell and the Village of Dehaies. It’s ideal or Caribbean cruisers because there
are no race marks – simply a start line in Guadeloupe and a finish line in Antigua.

The race will start on Friday, April 28 just north of Deshaies and finish off the Pillars of Hercules in English
Harbour, followed by a prize giving at Antigua Yacht Club at 5:30 pm.

The race record set by Mari-Cha IV of 2 hours, 18 minutes and 42 seconds in 2004 stood until it was smashed by Lloyd Thornburg’s MOD 70 trimaran Phaedo^3 in 2015 in an amazing 1 hour and 27 minutes!
