The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta draws experienced sailors from more than 35 nations for four days of top-notch racing. The 43rd iteration of this important sailing competition will take place in Simpson Bay, St. Maarten, in 2023, according to the organizers. More than 200 boats are taking part in the regatta, including live-aboard families cruising the Caribbean, hypo-competitive sports boats, maxis, monohulls, and performance multihulls.
The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta guarantees top-notch sailing and top-notch hospitality. The organizers are still making a lot of effort to keep the Sailors for the Sea designation as a “clean” regatta. The 2023 regatta registration period is now open.
