Changes to Casa de Campo Sailing Week 2012
After meeting with representatives of the Dominican sailing fleet, and other international sailors, organizers decided to change the dates for the Casa de Campo Sailing Week 2012. The event will now take place from February 7th to 12th – one week earlier than previously announced. The decision to change the dates also took into consideration the suggestion of many sailors from Puerto Rico that think they’d have a better chance to participate if the dates were brought forward.

Antigua Sailing Week update
The organizers of Antigua Sailing Week announce the return of the Yachting World Round Antigua Race for Antigua Sailing Week 2012. Different for 2012, however, is that it will be an optional race to take place on Saturday April 28th the day before Antigua Sailing Week officially starts. As an optional race, it will be open to all yachts regardless of if they are entered in Antigua Sailing Week, and will be scored separately from the other Antigua Sailing Week races.

Kathy Lammers, Chairman of the Regatta Organizing Committee said: “We’re very excited to have Yachting World Magazine sponsor the Round Antigua Race once again. Making the change to an optional race has already been extremely well received in the yachting community and with the new format we expect to attract a much larger variety of classes.”

Classes for the race will include maxi and racing, sport boat, cruising, multihull, bareboat and classic classes.
