From Easter to carnival time in August, Anguilla’s boat racing season is active. Races between these times include: the annual Around-the-Island Boat Race which is held on May 30th (Anguilla Day), Peter Perkins Memorial Race and Whit Monday race, to name a few. The spectators build the hype from land
A captain is as good as his crew but the fusion of a well-crafted boat, a strategic captain, a cooperative crew and favourable weather makes for an exceptional racing day in Anguilla! Let me prove to you why the builders of Anguilla’s race boats, their captains and crew deserve accolades
