Yacht Club News – Apr 05


The 3rd Mix Up Regatta, organized by the Anguilla
Sailing Association takes place next month, May 6 to 8. A strong field of
entrants from Anguilla and neighbouring islands is expected, as well as the
local heroes on the famous Anguillan wooden sloops.

Caribbean racing season, from the 14th to 19th. On the 21st,
the Guadeloupe Race provides the big guns with their warm up for Antigua
Sailing Week, 24th to 30th. With four huge events in a
month, there’s nowhere else to be in April.
