The Caribbean Racing Circuit for 2019 onwards has no less than 19 international events listed including passage racing, offshore, round the rocks, round the cans, and of course around a number of different islands.

Depending on the boat and your preferences, racing is served up for classics, superyacht, match racing and CSA classes, plus new for 2019 is the Caribbean Multihull Challenge taking place in St. Maarten from the 8 - 10 February.

The RORC Transatlantic Race which finishes in Grenada kicks off the season and offers racers a great way to make their passage to the Caribbean prior to the main racing season starting. A passage race from Barbados to Antigua in the newly formed Barbados Sailing Week gets boats to Antigua in time for the Superyacht Challenge. The end of season final race is the Antigua to Bermuda Race which is a great way to begin the move north for the summer. Stops at St. Thomas, St. Croix, The British Virgin Islands and St. Barths ensure that regatta options are varied.

For boats who want to get to their summer racing destination quicker, shipping options out of St. Thomas, Antigua, Martinque and St. Maarten will allow you the time to enjoy the Caribbean season to the fullest before heading off.

The Caribbean Sailing Association committed to issuing a five year calendar each summer to assist campaigning yachts with their plans and to ensure that newcomers to the region clearly understand the choice of options to race at an international level throughout the region. Peter Holmberg, past president of the CSA says, "The Caribbean region is unmatched in the wide range of options on offer and also in the cooperation of all events who work together to ensure minimal conflict of event dates."
