Simpson Bay, St. Maarten –January 25th, 2016

Sea Hawk Paints and the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta celebrate five years of partnership of the event. Sea Hawk Paints, which is based out of Clearwater Florida, has been a presenting sponsor since 2012. Sea Hawk, which has developed a line of antifouling, specifically for the tough condition of the Caribbean waters, is dedicated to the event and looks forward to another successful regatta.

For many boat owners, antifouling is a common concern, especially in the Caribbean.  With a large variety of choices, it’s important to find the product that best suits your needs. That’s why Sea Hawk Paints has developed “The Islands Family” line, purposely formulated for tough Caribbean and tropical waters. Specifically there are three main products, the Islands 44, Islands 77 and Islands 99. This is a range of products that will accommodate all Caribbean sailors. The Islands Family line can be found on St. Maarten at local distributor, Budget Marine.

For the regatta organization, teaming up with like minded sponsors is key to the success and advancement of the event. Partners like Sea Hawk Paints make it easier to run the regatta as they understand the needs of sailors, and can offer solid support to make sure that the event runs as smoothly as possible. Whether it’s providing products or tents, Sea Hawk has been open to almost any request from the first day of their sponsorship.

“Having a sponsor that understands your target group is crucial. We know that they understand the environment we are working in and the sailors we encounter. We have had their support for five years now and we hope that this remains the case for many more years to come” commented Michelle van der Werff, Regatta Director. “Sea Hawk Paints has also assisted in promoting the event in the USA as well as Europe, by distributing flyers of the event at their stands during trade and boat shows. This type of promotion is crucial to the event and confirms why it is so important for the event to have mainland based partners.”

Sea Hawk Paints will always be an integral part of the Caribbean sailors’ way of life with products available throughout the Caribbean with the Islands Family antifouling product line and being an active part of events near-and-dear to Caribbean sailors. Making application specific paints geared for the Caribbean waters has been their mainstay for decades and Sea Hawk Paints provides the highest quality products with the only antifouling paint in the industry that is backed up with a Written Guarantee.

“Sea Hawk is once again proud to sponsor the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta and invites the avid sailors from around the globe who congregate there to experience our new Islands Family of premium antifouling paints,” says Erik Norrie, Sea Hawk Paints’ CEO.
