St. Maarten Heineken Regatta

This weekend marks the annual Heineken Regatta in St. Maarten, the island’s largest sailing event of the year, necessitating a massive influx of sailors and of sail boats ranging from 9m to 30m in length. With a wide array of nationalities competing and with boats of varying degrees of racing ability, the competition is one that is diverse and has an emphasis on fun. One of the central components of the regatta (appropriately, since it is sponsored by Heineken) is the multiple bands and parties that are scheduled every night of the weekend all around the island. For everyone in St. Maarten, the bustle and energy of this event is an exciting addition to the Caribbean winter season.
