Antigua Sailing Week is turning into a virtual event this year because of the pandemic.
The physical week of sailing had been cancelled and this virtual edition will be centred around ‘Sailing Week Sunday’, a virtual event with stories, interviews and entertainment live from Antigua.
The two-hour event is on April 25 on the Antigua Sailing Week Facebook and YouTube accounts. It aims to connect with locals, the diaspora and reconnect with an audience who are long-time supporters of Antigua Sailing Week, their friends who have heard great things about it, as well as fans of the sport and the destination - any of whom may be considering Antigua & Barbuda as a vacation option.
“In the void created by the 2020 cancellation we relied on social media flashbacks to previous years to maintain visibility and our spot on the calendar,” said event manager Rana Lewis. “After the cancellation of 2021 we sensed the need to interact with our worldwide audience in real time while sharing the highlights of racing in Antigua & Barbuda.”
