“Alice Widdows Regatta Management made our transition to the Mediterranean racing circuit smooth and effortless. Following an early initial discussion with Captain and owner she understood our needs and our budget. From sourcing villas and accommodations, to handling all our logistics and transportation needs, to sourcing cooks and crew, to getting difficult berths in coveted harbors and the right table in the right restaurant at the right time she makes it all look so easy. Her daily reminders, via text, email and Whatsapp,ensured every member of the team was where they needed to be. Our experience exceeded expectations and was, surprise surprise, under budget. She takes care of everything else so that owner, Captain and crew can focus on the sailing and enjoying the whole experience.”

“I have had the pleasure of working directly with Alice, The founder of Alice Widdows Regatta Management, to coordinate SPARTAN’s first Mediterranean race campaign. Alice has the highest level of attention to detail and an unsurpassed work ethic. As a result, my experience of working with AWRM has not only been a pleasure, but also highly productive. Alice’s support off the water has made it possible for our success on the water this season!”
Skipper of S/Y SPARTAN
“The W-Class Racing Team first came to race in Western Mediterranean for the summer of 1999, with the W.76 identical sloops: “Wild Horses” and “White Wings”. But we were missing something; I had the vision of what I wanted to accomplish, but lacked the ability to attain our goals, coordinate all the details, organize the crews and helm one of the W-Class boats, all at same time.
The logistics, coordination, planning for the boats, regattas, housing, ground transportation, core crew, race crew, guests, the media: the photographers, print and magazines, the regatta organizers, the regatta sponsors, all the stake holders needed to organized. We were very lucky, by 2001, we found such an person, to handle all this work: Alice Widdows.
Alice has these skills. I credit Alice with helping to us establish our W-Class brand in New England, the Western Med., Great Britain and the Caribbean. She is multi-lingual, extra coordinated. Just like an AMEX card: don’t leave home without one; or attempt a sailboat yacht campaign without her.”
