Antigua and Barbuda is ready to receive its yachting guests for the start of the winter season and is sending a clear signal that it is as welcoming as ever.
The docks are well-booked and marine service businesses, restaurants, stores and yacht services are gearing up to receive an influx of boats who have already set sail for the Caribbean.
The marinas are all implementing protocols to control access to the docks. Wearing of masks, sanitisation and social distancing are all key along with temperature testing prior to being given access to the docks. Restaurants similarly have re-laid their floors to ensure that guests can enjoy a socially distanced enjoyable dining experience.
The intention is to fulfil all yachting events on the calendar including the Budget Marine Hightide Series, the Nelsons Pursuit Race, the Superyacht Challenge Antigua, RORC Caribbean 600, Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta, Antigua Sailing Week and other fun one day races.
