Cancelled Antigua Sailing Week Goes Virtual in Bid to Promote 2022 Event

Antigua Sailing Week Goes Virtual
Antigua Sailing Week Goes Virtual

Having cancelled its Antigua Sailing Week, the Caribbean organisers have announced a Sailing Week Sunday – a virtual event with stories, interviews and entertainment, transmitting from Antigua on April 25, 2021.

Annually the international coverage of Antigua Sailing Week places Antigua & Barbuda as an "unparalleled destination for an active lifestyle".

With 2022 on the horizon the event is taking this opportunity to begin to build momentum for what will certainly be a bumper year.

Event manager Rana Lewis stated: “In the void created by the 2020 cancellation we relied on social media flashbacks to previous years to maintain visibility and our spot on the calendar. After the cancellation of 2021, we sensed the need to interact with our worldwide audience in a festive manner while sharing the highlights of racing in Antigua & Barbuda. Essentially it is our way of extending an invitation to come as soon as is safely possible to race, chase and celebrate with us.”

The 2-hour programme aims to connect with locals, the diaspora and reconnect with an audience who are longtime supporters and participants of Antigua Sailing Week, their friends who have heard great things about it, as well as fans of the sport and the destination - any of whom may be considering Antigua & Barbuda as an active or leisure vacation option.
