The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta would not exist without the help of our volunteers. During the event, approximately 200 volunteers are needed in order to execute the event. Some volunteers have been involved in the event since the beginning and keep coming back so they can meet up with friends and be involved in the Regatta.

There are many tasks to be occupied by the volunteers. Some examples are: being on the committee boat, operations, merchandise, volunteer care, operating the bar etc.

The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta offers a water taxi service to its competitors, sponsored by Sol Petroleum. This implies bringing competitors from their sail boats to the onshore venues and back.

For our water taxi team, we are always looking for new people to join us. So, do you have your dinghy license, or a license that allows you to drive a dinghy? Or would you rather like to assist with the water taxi but you don’t have a license? Then please fill in the following form: Sign-up Form Water Taxi 2019
