The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, first weekend in March. This regatta offers four days of World Class Racing, with trade winds coming from the North East, an average temperature of 25°C and crystal clear waters. This truly international event had a staggering 32 different countries represented during the Regatta. Courses will take participants along coastal races, as well as around the island, presenting the beautiful beaches, rock formations and other scenery. On shore participants and visitors will be able to enjoy the culture, cuisine and music from both the Dutch and French side.
The St. Barth's Bucket Regatta is a congenial, invitational regatta set in the Corinthian spirit. Invitations can be extended to yachts whose LOA is 30.5 meters (100 feet) or greater, or to ones that qualify under the ‘grandfather clause’. Safe sailing is the highest priority of the event organizer, therefore, an invitation will be extended to those eligible yachts whose owners, captains, crews and guests endeavor to make this a safe and enjoyable event. The St. Barth's Bucket Regatta is mostly held mid March.
