Welcome Members and Visitors
2014 will see the Antigua Yacht Club achieve its forty fifth year of operation as a sailing club. During that period it has seen many trials and tribulations including near bankruptcy but gradually, the club has received recognition as one of the world's more prestigeous yacht clubs.
Prestigeous does not mean exclusive, Antigua Yacht Club is open to anyone who has an interest in water sports even if it is sitting on the dock and watching. What has increased the club's international recognition has been the success of its annual Classic Yacht Regatta, the hosting of the RORC Caribbean 600 annually from 2009, the inclusion of the yacht club as the centre for Antigua Sailing Week and other activities such as the Caribbean Dinghy Championships.
Recent developments at the Club have included the commercial letting of the Members' bar and terrace including the doubling in size of the terrace. Further plans will make greater use of the first floor of the new Sailing Centre which is now known as the Events Centre and which will be linked by a first floor terrace to the Members' Room and bar.
The outgoing Commodore, Elizabeth Jordan, will be a hard act to follow. The National Sailing Academy which she spawned at the Antigua Yacht Club is an incalcuable national asset which introduces Antiguan children to both the sport and industry of yachting, part of the lifeblood of Antigua
