Budget Marine High Tide Series on its 25th year of mixing Christmas Celebrations with yacht races.

The High Tide Series, also known as the Christmas series, has stood out for bringing together visitors and locals in friendly sportsmanlike racing and after race events.  Budget Marine is a proud sponsor of this event and invites you to participate in this racing tradition held at the Antigua Yacht Club.

The Budget Marine High Tide Series offers an exciting 5-race event over the Christmas period. The event will accommodate all types of keel boats, and the racing class will require CSA certificates. The prize giving will take place at the Antigua Yacht Club with a post event Party & Prize giving on Boxing Day evening. Races start at the entrance to Falmouth Harbour and the racing takes place just outside Falmouth Harbour.

The provisional schedule for racing is as follows:

Day 1, Sunday December 18th, 2 races

Day 2, Thursday December 22nd, 1 race

Day 3, Monday December 26th Boxing Day, 2 races, with the final race of the day being open to all comers for the “Boxing Day barrel” which was introduced in 2015 for the first time. The “Barrel” is awarded to the class winner that beats the second place yacht by the biggest percentage margin. Last year “Taz” won her Class by 4.2%, however, “Ugo” won hers by 4.3% so Sir Hugh Bailey collected the trophy.
