Antigua Sailing Week in April - 20 Mar 2009
The Antigua Sailing Week takes place in the exotic holiday destination of Antigua next month.
More than 200 vessels of various shapes and sizes are expected to turn up for the event, which is held at Falmouth Harbour and English Harbour between April 26th and May 2nd.
Organisers recently moved to reassure visitors that the week would still go ahead, despite sponsors Stanford International Bank going into receivership.
"The racing will not be compromised in any way and we will ensure that the 2009 edition of this great event will be as enjoyable and as memorable as the years gone by," commented the organising committee.
In addition to the yacht races, there will also be a schools' art competition, a beach bash at Fort James and the Captains' Cocktail Party at the Jolly Harbour Golf Club.
