English Harbour, Antigua
31 Jan - 3 Feb 2019
Kicking off the Caribbean regatta season in style, the Superyacht Challenge Antigua will be back on 31 January 2019 for another four days of nail-biting action.
Now in its ninth year, the Superyacht Challenge Antigua never fails to bring a magnificent fleet of sailing yachts to the beautiful south coast of Antigua. Last year, the fixture was extended to incorporate five races over four days and this programme will return for 2019.
Fair racing and good companionship are valued above all else at the event. Competitors and race organisers will vote for the yacht that has competed in the ‘spirit of the regatta’ and the yacht with the most votes will be awarded the Gosnell Trophy.
Despite the focus on fairness and camaraderie, the racing is still highly competitive. In 2018, all the competitors in the Corsairs Class were previous winners with the victor undecided until the final race of the challenge.
Topping the leaderboard and winning for the second year in a row was the 34m/112ft charter yacht SPIIP. To find out whether the Royal Huisman build can retain her title in 2019, plan a luxury yacht charter to coincide with the regatta and catch all the action from the comfort of your superyacht.

LOCAL DESTINATION INFORMATION
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.
