Nelson's Dockyard, Antigua
25th - 27th Jan 2013
Following last years success, 2013 will see another Superyacht Challenge take place in Nelson's Dockyard, but this one will be slightly different.
With one clear goal; to host the ideal event for an exlusive group of yachts, the Superyacht Challenge delivers fair racing and good-natured competition.
The regatta will continue to limit its numbers to just 12-15 yachts, dependent on the type of yacht, and it will have no sponsorship to ensure the event is held purely for the enjoyment of the participants, rather than to satisfy any other third party interests.
The 2012 Challenge was a great success, but based on the feedback that was received, this year will see a few changes - four races will be scheduled over the three days with the social events held on shore and hosted by the Admiral's Inn in English Harbour.
