The Academy is funded by donations from individuals, groups and businesses – both in Antigua and overseas. We also ask every yacht visiting a marina in Antigua for a voluntary standard contribution of US$1.00 per foot of overall length per year.
The Academy has plans to expand to 'satellite' locations on both the East (Parham Harbour) and West (Jolly Harbour) coasts. We will need additional dinghy fleets for these locations.
We are offering sponsors the opportunity to have a dinghy branded with their name/logo if they wish. Sponsorship for an Pico will be U$4,000. The opportunity also exists, at this stage, for a major sponsor to have a fleet of 6 Picos branded uniformly – the total cost for this will be U$25,000.
Those making standard contributions will be added to our roll of 'Friends of the Academy' and those making larger donations or sponsoring boats will be listed as 'Sponsors' of the Academy.
We will publish a periodic Newsletter informing of our progress
