Hold onto your sailing cap as you charter a ship from Nelson's Dockyard to follow along with the many yachts and ships that use this marina in English Harbour as a launching point for races. Named after Admiral Horatio Nelson, who lived in the Dockyard in the 18th century, Nelson's Dockyard is home to many sailing and yachting events, including Antigua Sailing Week. The restored Georgian yard includes nature trails to Fort Berkeley - which guards the dockyard entrance - a naval yard museum, a hotel, and the old Officers Quarters, which are now shops and restaurants. The most important attraction on Antigua, many cruise ships offer excursions to the dockyard. Combine your holiday with a bit of history. Take a tour of the dockyard and imagine how many glorious ships launched from the marina during the time of Nelson... You might still hear the echo of the Great Admiral ordering his sailor's to unfurl the sails!
