Full Schedule

Our second Caribbean race for the season will be the iconic Heineken Regatta in the lovely St. Maarten from March 1-4, 2018. Now its 38th edition of the race, the Heineken Regatta boasts “Serious Fun” as intense competition during the day is matched with exceptional partying at night.

Although St Maarten was one of the worst hit by Hurricane Irma, the island has come together with great spirit to rebuild and welcome back sailors to paradise. Princess Port de Plaisance Resort & Casino will be this year's host and create the regatta's first official race village! All competitors will be docked at the Yacht Club and there will be plenty of entertainment just steps away at the resort. This regatta will be one of the most important in the island's history and we are looking for a team to join us for this special event. 

With lots of different classes and near 40 countries represented in the competition, we expect to see a lot of excitement on the course from the round the island to inshore races. This world renowned regatta hosts four days of racing — with unbeatable Northeastern trade winds and an average temperature of 25°C, you’ll forget it’s winter back home!

The team will arrive by February 28 for training, racing will kick off with the Gill Commodore's Cup on March 1, then we get right into 3 days of racfring. Each night is capped by a different crew party, so this is certainly an endurance regatta. The long weekend of racing and celebrating concludes with a final concert event headlined by Grammy-winning artist, Shaggy! Crew are permitted to sleep onboard (up to 8 crew) for the duration of the event and food is provided while racing.
