“Antigua Classics is the grandaddy of all the classic regattas,” according to Nicholson. “The warm trade winds, clear blue skies, amazing fleet of beautiful yachts and unparalleled social events make this one of the most fun events for sailors and lovers of classics, and for non-sailors alike.”
Eros can accommodate 14 guests on racing days and then six guests overnight. She launched in 1939 at Brooks Motor Craft in Britain, became part of the Royal Navy during World War II, and then returned to the waters as a private yacht in the Mediterranean.
Her current owners have had her since 1992, and have made it their goal to complete a museum-quality restoration of the classic sailing yacht.
