Caribbean Regattas 2023

We are looking forward to the 2023 Caribbean Regattas series and the relaxation of many of the protocols allowing easier entry by air or sea … this should also make the deliveries between the islands more attractive for those looking to build some miles and passages on board 

Spirit of Juno, our Farr 65 comes with new sails … a No 3 and No 4 from North Sails added to the North 3Di mainsail which will resolve the early season challenges from 2022. Fabian Kundig joins us again from Switzerland for the Barbados, Grenada and Caribbean 600 events along with David Hanks, a very experienced skipper and RYA Instructor from Ireland. 

Individual and small group places are available still for all of the regattas on Juno

We also have a Beneteau 36.7 called Blueprint available for all of the regattas [now sold for ASW 23] on a whole boat charter basis. She should be very competitive

There are a couple of changes to the regatta formats most notably the creation of a race series for the RORC Caribbean 600  14th, 15th Feb will be inshore racing ; 16th is Lay day and then 17th the 360 Round Antigua Race. The main event starts on the 20th . At this stage we plan to race the full series and will have to rejig our usual training programme

2023 also sees the return of the Antigua to Bermuda Race . The Barbados Sailing Week also sees an extra day of racing
