About Antigua
By far one of the most interesting and varied islands in the West Indies, Antigua's volcanic southern hills and rolling limestone plains are surrounded by a convoluted shoreline hiding spectacular white sand beaches.

Its natural harbours are unparalleled in the islands, a fact not wasted on the British Navy who fortified several of them to protect their sugar interests in the 17 and 1800's. Their silent cannon now decorate restored forts at Nelsons Dockyard, Shirley's Heights and other commanding points as yachts of all descriptions sail the same waters as the old-time aggressors. Almost any type of sailing is available in Antigua, from windsurfing to dinghy sailing to crewed or bareboat charters. An often exercised option is a day sail on one of the local catamarans.

Now a world class yachting destination, Antigua is home to one of the largest and best known regattas in the world, Antigua Sailing Week which takes place in late April each year and brings together over 200 boats of many nationalities for a week of racing. Antigua Classic Regatta occurs the week before Sailing week and has built a reputation as one of the finest annual gatherings of classic yachts.

A look at the map reveals countless embayments, harbors and islands - one of the most complex coastlines in the West Indies with everything from sheer cliffs to pure white sand beaches to mangrove wetlands which host thousands of migrant birds each winter. Antigua is one of those places where you will see more shades of blue, green and in-between than you thought possible. The ocean has provided for generations of Antiguan fishermen and several dive operators now share its richness with visitors. Antiguan sites are concentrated in the West and South. Southern sites include steep rock walls with submerged boulders and coral encrustation rather than true reef, whereas the Western sites include wrecks and coral knolls rising from the sandy bottom.
