10th Anniversary Edition - The Superyacht Challenge Antigua 2020

Caroline Blatter

11-15th March in stunningly restored Nelsons Dockyard, where history meets modern superyachts... and 'where fair racing and good companionship are valued above all else…'

2020 Entries:

The Superyacht Challenge Antigua is designed to be solely for the pleasure of superyacht owners, their guests and crew.
This celebratory 2020 Regatta, sees a magnificent fleet of 19 yachts taking part in four days of spectacular racing off the stunning south coast of Antigua; pure fun afloat and ashore, with laid back social events - the Famous Cook Off and Caribbean Night , all free from commercial endorsements - a wonderful relaxed celebration of sailing, people and parties!

Baltic Yachts have a phenomenal presence this year, with Liara, Nilaya, Pink Gin and WinWin – all competing in Antigua, to be then joined by two more Baltic Yachts - Scopione of London and Cavallo, for the 2020 St. Barths Bucket the foillowing week.

The spectacle of four J Class Yachts racing as the strongest class fleet since the 2017 J Class World Championships in Newport, RI and for the for the very first time at the Antigua Superyacht Challenge, is sure to draw spectators to the hill tops to watch these magnificent yachts  compete around their own course. 

Up to eight races will be sailed by the J's, from Thursday 12th through Sunday 15th March.

The majestic sight of Lionheart, Svea, Topaz and Velsheda promising to deliver a tense on-water battle will herald the beginning of an exciting 12 months for the J’s – as they have been invited to race centre stage during the 2021 America’s Cup season in Auckland. 

Yachts heading across the South Pacific to New Zealand will progressively move west towards Panama after sailing in these fantastic memorable Caribbean regattas!

Fair winds, safe sailing and enjoy the rum and Ting’s!


Thank you to the Antigua Superyacht Challenge committee, and the J Class Association for detailed information.
