Gearing up of the maritime season, why yachts are docked in Antigua and Barbuda


The yacht industry in the islands of Antigua and Barbuda started preparing for the winter season. Most restaurants, taxi services, and sailing tours are not quarantined like some public places, restaurants, and online casino promotions.


Unlike this north country, in Antigua and Barbuda, the quarantine situation is much easier. The island has started tourism since June and still continues to receive guests.


Now we are going to learn about how the tourism industry on the islands is going to develop during the quarantine!


During the winter holidays, and during the winter in common on the island of Antigua and Barbuda, people are going to hold a huge number of mass events. These also include popular events such as the RORC Caribbean 600 and Antigua Sailing Week. Who does not know about these events and are only planning their own trip to the Caribbean islands or other islands of the Caribbean Sea, then we should tell you about these two cool events in brief.

The RORC Caribbean 600 is a small competition between yacht owners. Participants need to swim a certain distance through the most picturesque places of the Caribbean islands. The name of the event got its name since sailors need to walk exactly 600 miles. The main goal of the event is not a victory, but an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful nature of the Caribbean islands.


Antigua Sailing Week is one of the most famous events in the Caribbean. Founded back in 1967, the event means sailing out to sea. The number of people participating is usually one and a half thousand people. Thanks to this event that you can enjoy a huge number of yachts, sails, and other vessels. This breathtaking sight is definitely worth seeing.


Due to quarantine, precautions must be taken before such mass events. The Ministry of Tourism is currently deciding to do a little training for restaurant staff, yacht crew, and even for taxi drivers. The training aims to present all safety precautions ahead of an upcoming mass event.


In order to safely enjoy the upcoming events, representatives of the Ministry of Health are going to hold several seminars, so that the time on the islands is safe. Anyone interested in the event should be present at seminars on protocols.


Also, a separate protocol will be prepared for those who own a yacht or are going to go to sea on a rented seagoing vessel. Such a precautionary measure was prepared by the government since it is in this season that they are ready and hope for a high influx of boats in the ports. Such expectations are associated with the flow of tourists, which was higher last year. Therefore, in order for the new flow of tourists to meet the winter and winter holidays on the islands without incident and danger, the government has developed such an action plan.


If you are planning a trip to Antigua and Barbuda, then just leave all doubts behind. These islands are the perfect holiday destination. If the main criteria for your vacation are white sand, clean warm water, and amazing beach views, then a resort on these islands is definitely for you.
