Antigua is the largest of the British Leeward Islands (108 sq. miles) and enjoys world renown amongst knowledgeable sailors, due largely to its rich nautical history. Lord Horatio Nelson based his fleet here during colonial times and visitors to English Harbor on the southeast side of the island can visit Nelson’s Dockyard, a carefully restored example of British Georgian architecture. During the annual “Sailing Week”, hundreds of yachts can be seen crowding this harbor with competitors swapping stories of sailing and carousing, each tale growing larger and larger as the week goes on.
