The 29th edition of the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta will take place from 13th to 19th April 2016, promising an extraordinary line-up of yachts competing against the backdrop of one of the Caribbean's most beautiful cruising grounds.

Hosted by the Antigua Yacht Club, the event marks the start of 2016’s Panerai Classic Yacht Challenge and will attract an impressive mix of classic sailing yachts to the Caribbean.

In total, up to 60 yachts are expected to compete in the 52-nautical-mile race around the island of Antigua. A wonderful variety of competitors is guaranteed, including the 42m/139ft superyacht Rebecca, who returns to the regatta after taking the top spot in last year’s Spirit of Tradition Class.

Another winner making her way back to the 2016 regatta will be the 32m/105ft superyacht Whitehawk, after four consecutive wins in Vintage Class A and taking home the Panerai Trophy for the second year in succession at last year’s event.

Organised by Officine Panerai, the Panerai Classic Yacht Challenge unites the world’s most magnificent classic sailing yachts at the iconic racing venues across the planet.

    About Antigua

    Antigua’s picture-perfect coast is home to what feels like endless stretches of powder-soft beaches with secret caves surrounded by nothing but azure blue waters. To best enjoy the areas once traveled by Nelson, and to best discover the enchanting coral reefs which historically troubled enemy ships, you'll want to be on board a charter yacht. What's more, as the winter home of A-list stars such as Giorgio Armani and Oprah Winfrey, an Antigua yacht charter offers access to some of the Caribbean’s most exclusive resorts, nestled in a myriad of bays and inlets.
