America's Cup
The inaugural Antigua to Bermuda Race is set to start on Friday May 12th.

There are just 4 places left on our Volvo 60 for this exciting offshore challenge to arrive in Bermuda in time for the America’s Cup.
The single berth charter rate is just US$1,900 and this will include

  • Two days of pre race training – May 10th & 11th
  • All food whilst on board
  • Accommodation on board from the start of training until the end of the event.
  • Crew shirt.

With training, this 935 nm sprint north should take about 7 days and, with the steady winds normal for this time of year, we should arrive in Bermuda for prize giving on May 20th.
The race is timed to take place after the finish of the 50th Antigua Sailing Week and offers a perfect finale to a fantastic Caribbean Racing Season.

The destination is the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, one of the oldest yacht clubs in North America. It was formed in 1844, seven years before the America’s Cup was conceived.

Goslings is the official rum of the America’s Cup and they will be sponsoring both the pre race party in Antigua on May 10th and prize giving in Bermuda on May 20th.
Given the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club have hosted the Newport to Bermuda Race for many years, a good party is guaranteed.

Already over 40 top quality yachts have expressed an interest in racing to Bermuda and these include Mile Slade’s Farr 100, and Leopard 3.

Classic yachts such as Eleonora and The Blue Peter have also registered ensuring not only a great race but a beautiful spectacle.

This package is a perfect way to round off your season in the Caribbean, and provides passage to Bermuda for what is set to be an interesting and exciting 35th America’s Cup.
