The 2023 regatta calendar kicks off with the well-established 12th edition of the Superyacht Challenge Antigua
, held every year in Nelson
’s Dockyard. Organised and run by Paul Deeth and Stan Pearson, the exciting and friendly challenge is designed to be a fun, social and pleasurable experience for superyacht owners, guests, and crew. There is also optional racing around the island, with the start and finish lines just off the English Harbour.
Participants are divided into three classes — buccaneers, corsairs, and privateers — and rather than a traditional trophy, winners are awarded barrels of rum, perfectly packaged in true Caribbean style. Additional prizes include the best-dressed crew, the loudest Caribbean shirt, and a cook-off between yacht crews. The Gosnell Trophy is awarded to the crew that competes in the “Spirit of the Regatta” on the water and the shore.
