Antigua gained total independence on November 1st 1981, when for the first time in 328 years the Union jack was lowered and replaced with the Antiguan Flag, and then the Antiguan National Anthem was sung.
This year’s show is extended to cover six days and will again take place at the Nelson’s Dockyard Marina in English Harbour, the Falmouth Harbour Marina and the Antigua Yacht Club Marina both located in Falmouth Harbour.
Due to demand from charter brokers and yacht management companies, all registered yachts will remain on the dock throughout the full 5 viewing days. The additional day, , is ‘Day Sail’ day offering managements companies an opportunity to invite visiting brokers to experience a ‘micro-charter’ cruising Antigua’s stunning coastal waters and islands aboard a choice of some of the finest charter yachts in the Caribbean.

The challenge is held in Antigua in late January or early February when yachts in excess of 80 feet are invited to participate in an exciting, friendly event – the Superyacht Challenge Antigua!
