Published: Thursday, December 14, 2017

The Moorings, the world’s premier yacht charter company, is pleased to introduce Antigua as their newest sailing destination. Bareboat and skippered sailing charters in this stunning cruising destination are now available to book for departures beginning November 4th.

Highly regarded as one of the most desirable sailing destinations in the world, Antigua offers a quintessential Caribbean appeal, delighting visitors with its easy pace, friendly islanders, 18th century charm, and distinctive elegance. The largest English-speaking Leeward island, Antigua is surrounded by 54-miles of idyllic coastline comprised of 365 beaches and secluded anchorages best explored by yacht.

The Moorings charter base is conveniently located at the historic Nelson’s Dockyard in English Harbour. A designated UNESCO site, this premier Antigua marina seamlessly pairs timeless architecture and naval heritage with modern amenities and stylish accommodations. Antigua also hosts a number of
prominent sailing events and regattas, including the annual Antigua Sailing Week scheduled for April 28 – May 4, 2018.

“With steady trade winds and delightfully-warm weather prevailing throughout the year, Antigua is a must-see sailing destination worthy of every traveler’s bucket list,” states The Moorings’ Vice President of Sales and Marketing Josie Tucci. The turquoise blue waters are home to some of the most impeccable snorkeling conditions in the Caribbean and also provide a safe haven for endangered Hawksbill sea turtles. On land, visitors can indulge on Antigua’s rare Black Pineapple, famous for being the sweetest pineapple in the world. And come dusk, the vibrant party scene comes alive with island vibes that are impossible to resist.
