ST. Maarten Heineken Regatta

 

27 February – 4 March 2019

In 1980, that is called today as St Maarten Heineken Regatta, was called just St Maarten Regatta and it had a modest inscription of 12 boats. In 1993, Heineken take a part as main sponsor with also a modest budget of 2100 $.

While competing, racers had access to cold beers. They only had to call the Heineken motorboat which was into the regatta field.

After the entrance of Heineken, the event grew up and in 1995 the inscription was over 185 boats. In 2005 a second event was added, The Commodore’s Cup, reaching in 2008 the number of 284 boats inscribed.

Representations from more than 35 countries. Olympic Sailors, World Champions, Maxis, Multihulls, Corinthian Series….In a magnificent environment into Caribbean’s heart. “Serious Fun Racing” is the normal description for this Top Class Regatta.
The Island of St Maarten is well known by its night life, and this is very patent at the social acts program. You can expect brilliant parties all nights, in the same way that Music Concerts from artists as UB40, Black Eyed Peas, Wyclef Jean, Shaggy…

Enjoy a Top Regatta Week under the Blue Caribbean Sky. After each competition day and for don’t stop smiling, once we arrive at port entrance we will have to perform, as all crews, our Best Bridge Show, already a classic of St Maarten Heineken Regatta. Later, just to say good bye to another day at Paradise, get ready for the Best Parties on the unforgettable beaches of St Maarten.
