The three-year deal, which will run through to May 2022, has been launched in time to support Antigua Sailing Week’s ‘Road to 2020’ campaign, which will consist of three major worldwide events in Hamble, the home of Dream Yacht Charter’s base in the UK, the Hamptons in the USA and Lake Constance in Germany.
The three events will culminate in one lucky crew participating in each of the regattas winning access to a Dream Yacht Charter bareboat to take part in the 53rd annual Antigua Sailing Week Regatta in April 2020.
Andy Byham, Director of Dream Yacht Charter in the UK said: “We are excited to be able to support this wonderful event in a partnership that is very close to our hearts.
Antigua has long been one of our most popular yacht charter destinations, with customers enjoying both the pleasure and racing elements that this exemplary sailing ground has to offer.
“We are proud to be able to be named as long-term official bareboat sponsor for this event and with first, second and third place taken by Dream Yacht Charter boats during the 2019 regatta, we are sure 2020 will see even more exciting sailing.”
The Dream Yacht Charter fleet consists of 1000+ yachts in 50+ destinations worldwide, many of which have participated in Antigua Sailing Week in past years and have won in a number of race classes.
Antigua Sailing Week Marketing Manager, Rana Lewis said: “The summer events were designed to raise awareness of the competitive but fun bareboat fleets in Antigua Sailing Week as we aim to grow these classes each year.
“The ease of flying into the island and having a charter readily available is the perfect option for sailors with limited holiday time who want to experience the ultimate Caribbean regatta.”
The prize also includes flights to Antigua plus dockage in UNESCO heritage Nelson’s Dockyard which is the perfect base for participants and spectators both as a great marina and as an entertainment venue.
Staff from Antigua Sailing Week will be joining the Dream Yacht Charter UK team at various events throughout August and September including Cowes Week and the Southampton Boat Show on Friday 13th September.
