The coastlines of Antigua are ideal for yacht navigating and racing, with continuous trade-winds, and numerous harbors for expedition. Easily a week might be invested cruising around this picturesque island of the Caribbean. The sis island of Barbuda has shell laden coastlines so long that they dip below the horizon.

There are great airline connections with North America and Europe and Antigua is centrally located for Caribbean navigating.
