Get close to the action and feel the excitement of the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta on the official spectator boat. The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta office is proud to offer its Special Guest Program on the Golden Eagle Catamaran on Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th of March. This VIP trip has become one of the hottest spectator trips during the regatta and tickets usually sell out quickly.

The boat will depart from Bobby’s Marina, Philipsburg at 7:30 AM and will return to the marina around 12:30 PM. During this trip guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch and open bar. The guests will also receive an exclusive Special Guest Program goody bag filled with fun souvenirs and handy items, donated by St. Maarten Heineken Regatta’s loyal sponsors. In addition to all this, there will also be a Special Guest Program host/hostess that will be able to give detailed information about the on the water action taking place.  This is a great way to learn more about sailing, without actually being out on one of the race boats.

The cost per person is US$ 125 per day, and includes the trip out on the water, meals, open bar, goody bag and live commentator. So get on board the Golden Eagle catamaran, be part of the regatta and feel like a real VIP as you sail down to the start line!
