Following the conclusion of the Oyster World Rally, some 60 Oyster sailing yachts have converged on the Caribbean island of Antigua — bringing more Oysters to one location than ever before in the builder’s 40-year history.

Thirty-five of the boats are competing in the 33rd Oyster Regatta, which is turning Nelson’s Dockyard at English Harbour into a veritable Oyster showroom with 12 different models tied to the quay.

The six-day Oyster Regatta began April 7 and includes four days of racing. Partners supporting the event include Dolphin Sails, Lewmar, Pantaenius, Pelagos Yachts, Formula Marine, Raymarine and Reckman.
