Stanford International Bank is proud to be title sponsor of the 40th Antigua Sailing Week to be held April 29 through May 4, 2007.
"We have always looked forward to Antigua Sailing Week, and are delighted to expand our support as title sponsor for the 40th anniversary of this great event," said Juan Rodriguez-Tolentino, president of Stanford International Bank.
Antigua Sailing Week 2007 Organizing Committee Chairman Neil Forrester commented, "The 40th Anniversary year is a very special one for Antigua Sailing Week, which will see some major innovations. We are delighted that Stanford International Bank has stepped up to become our title sponsor and share in this exciting year with us. Stanford International Bank has been part of Sailing Week for four years and I have personally enjoyed working with the bank for the last two. We are looking forward to a very successful partnership over the coming years."
The courses for this 40th year will have some significant changes and classes will be created for multi-hulls and the large super-yachts.
Started in 1967 with a handful of local yachts, Antigua Sailing Week has grown to become one of the world's premier regattas. More than 1,500 participants including Olympic, America's Cup and around-the-world sailors pit their skills against one another in a sportsmanlike but fierce contest as over 200 boats compete in the blue Caribbean waters around Antigua. The event attracts at least 5,000 spectators and unquestionably some of the world's largest, fastest and most impressive racing yachts.
