Racing Heron for the Antigua Classic Regatta
Race with the finest classic yachts of all time. Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta brings
yachts from all around the world together to compete in 4 days of racing and fun. This
is truly one of the top classic yacht regattas in the world.
Sail aboard Heron as race crew for this spectacular event. The regatta typically has
60-80 boats of all kinds racing, from traditional island sloops, classic schooners, ketches
and yawls from all the famous yacht designers of the world, sail-training tall ships and
the classic America’s Cup J-Class sloops.
You will join Heron as crew for 2 practice race days before the first race to get an idea of
what the racing sails are, tacking procedure, and basic familiarization with the boat and
rig. Then the races begin. Antigua Classics is known for its “friendly” racing competition.
Appreciation of the sheer beauty of these classics is a large part of the event, and that
makes it fun. There is always time to get some good photos while we are racing.

inclusive food and drinks. $1950/person.
