The Moorings Antigua 1The Moorings has just announced the launch of its newest Caribbean destination, Antigua. Home to some of the most prestigious regattas in the world, Antigua offers 54 miles of exquisite coastline and excellent sailing conditions year-round, and has long been renowned as a top-tier sailing destination.

The Moorings will be located at Nelson’s Dockyard, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is currently the only working Georgian dockyard in the world, offering a unique starting point to your Antigua sailing adventure.

The fleet in Antigua is unique in that it is almost entirely monohull-driven at present with three monohulls available ranging from 45’ to 51’ in length. This makes it an ideal destination for experienced sailors interested in a skippered or bareboat charter.

Ian Pedersen, Marketing Manager – Americas for the charter company says they chose Antigua for several reasons. “Guests have long been inquiring about chartering in Antigua, but it is rather far to travel there from our next-closest destination, which is St. Martin. Similar to how we have “bookend” destinations available in the Windwards (St. Lucia and Grenada), we feel having charters available in Antigua and St. Martin will allow greater flexibility for guests seeking to explore the Leeward islands of the Caribbean.”

Charters are available for booking for departures now through 2018.
