Join a Maxi as Crew For Antigua Race Week

Antigua Sail Week

Captain/Owner, Antonio Flores, is offering 10 sailors an opportunity to join him for Antigua Race week from the deck of his

82’ Maxi ketch, FORTUNA.

Although re-built as a luxury charter yacht, FORTUNA maintains her thoroughbred racing pedigree. 


Captain Flores is a serious racing sailor,

“I leave the anchorage with the sail up and arrive back at the anchorage with the sail up…” and adds “On board FORTUNA we combine the Maxi sailing experience with lots of fun!” 

Don’t miss this great opportunity at a great price. The per person price is 2,000€ for up to 10 days beginning April 22, 2009. The price includes accommodations aboard FORTUNA, race entry fees, service of her crew of three, food and beverages, fuel and dockage. A refundable security fee of 850€ and crew gratuity are additional.  FORTUNA will race in the Non Spinnaker class. 

Guests are offered two boarding options: join FORTUNA April 22 in Guadeloupe after 6 p.m.  and participate in the Guadeloupe to Antigua race April 24th; or join the yacht in Antigua on the evening of April 24th.  

 After racing, guests may disembark on the morning of May 3rd in Antigua or sail back to Guadeloupe and disembark on the evening of May 3rd in Guadeloupe. 

Seize this rare opportunity to experience world class yacht racing and join the professionals ashore for all the festivities during Antigua Sailing Week.
