Antigua Sailing Week is the major regatta of the Caribbean season and one of the top five regattas in the world. Antigua Sailing Week justifiably has the reputation of being the hardest sailing/socializing regatta of the season. Winds can be higher than for the other regattas and a lot of the racing takes place on the ocean side of the Island with fairly large seas. The Regatta Week consists of 2 days training, 5 days racing with a layday in the middle.
Northern Child is superbly equipped for racing and is maintained to the very highest standard. Northern Child has participated in Antigua Sailing Week for the last 7 years and her latest Caribbean racing results include first overall on the Transatlantic ARC 2005, 2nd in class in the BVIs Spring Regatta 2004, 3rd in class at the St Maarten Heineken Regatta 2005, 3rd in class at the Antigua Sailing Week 2005 and 2nd in class at Antigua Sailing Week 2007.
When racing with individuals on board, our objective is to provide each guest with a great time racing in the Caribbean. The two professional crew will train the crew to ensure that the racing is safe, fun and that each crew member is able to make a valuable contribution to the team effort. Although prior race or sailing experience is preferred, it is not essential. The 2 training days represent a great opportunity for each crew member to get familiar with the yacht and the racing manoeuvres.
For this edition, Northern Child offers individual berths to crew wishing to experience some exhilarating racing and fabulous socializing.
The price quoted is per person and is all inclusive once you step on board the yacht. It does not include flights, transfers, personal insurance, crew gratuities and evening meals.
