The event, hosted annually by the St. Maarten Yacht Club, is renowned in the sailing world for its unbeatable combination of fast-paced action at sea and world-class parties ashore.

“We’re thrilled to be hosting the 28th Annual Heineken Regatta,” said Regina LaBega, Director of Tourism for the St. Maarten Tourism Bureau. “This colorful event brings to life the excitement and grace of yachting to everyone, whether you’re a land-lover or a sea-worthy sailor.” 

The Heineken Regatta boasts the distinguished title of being the largest sailing race in the Caribbean, with bare boats being the largest and most competitive division. Teams from the U.S., France, Belgium, Puerto Rico, Italy, Holland, Canada and the United Kingdom will all compete in the highly spirited race, which includes a variety of yachts consisting of family cruisers, sport boats, and business-like swans.
