‘By the beginning of February, most of our friends were asking us the same question: “Why aren’t you going to St. Maarten for the regatta?” We began to wonder … Why weren’t we going to the regatta? After some discussion and a mad scramble to make last-minute travel arrangements, we were in! We would stay from Thursday morning through Monday evening. …
We didn’t want to miss a thing.
As partiers instead of racers, we experienced the best of the weekend – beach bumming and shopping by day … merrymaking by night. Heineken and the people of St. Maarten/St. Martin know how to throw a great party. Next year we won’t miss a thing!’

The Promogirl’s Perspective
‘My experience over the last three years being a promo girl has been a very positive learning experience. In my experience, the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is one of the biggest parties of the year in St. Maarten / St. Martin. The Regatta represents a time to have serious fun.
I remember the day that my employer called me and said: “Ruth, you are now a Heineken girl!”. I was so excited that day. For the first St. Maarten Heineken Regatta I did we even got to dance! It was amazing dancing in front of all these people. I met Shaggy and took many pictures with him! Even though walking through the crowd was hard work I still enjoyed doing it, and I always had a smile on my face!
For my first Regatta I was the one giving out the prizes to the sailors, I truly enjoyed it. Plus it was great because you could easily tell that the sailors were having so much fun! Although my main objective is to promote Heineken and Heineken Premium Light, I always have a great fun being a promo girl. I truly enjoy working together with the other girls and because of this I got a lot of new friends! I am really looking forward to the next St. Maarten Heineken Regatta!’
