Welcome to the ST. MAARTEN HEINEKEN REGATTA


38 years strong and it just keeps getting better. Four days of world-class racing with some of the world’s most seasoned sailors, from more than 35 countries, sailing Maxis, Monohulls and Performance Multihulls to holiday-makers on chartered Bareboats and live-aboard families cruising the Caribbean. Crystal clear waters and cooling northeast trade winds give the pristine conditions for spectacular racing just off the coast of St. Maarten. And with Heineken as title sponsor, the racing days blend seamlessly into four nights of exceptional parties. This event is your bucket list must-do! Come and enjoy life in the Caribbean, come for some Serious Fun.

HELP REBUILD THE SINT MAARTEN YACHT CLUB
& SAILING SCHOOL


On September 6th St. Maarten lay right in the middle of Hurricane Irma’s monster path and devastation happened. The entire island was smashed, including the Sint Maarten Yacht Club. The docks, deck and fleet got severely damaged or wiped out. As a result, the young students enrolled in sailing lessons as part of our Youth Sailing Program no longer have the opportunity to sail until we rebuild our docks and replace the fleet. We have organized a temporary solution for the students still on island off Kim Sha Beach, however this significantly reduces the capacity of kids we can take sailing with a limited number of boats. With all the devastation surrounding the children of St. Maarten, we are determined to rebuild and to provide the youth with a positive activity and distraction from the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.

In order to rebuild, we are seeking donations to support our efforts. Please click here for more information.
