St. Maarten Heineken Regatta

Race | St. Maarten | March 1-7, 2021 | Skipper: CSM | Boat: Falcon

The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta may be famous for its parties, but the sailing is just as good. Round the island courses, windward-leewards, triangles with big reaching legs, there is something for everyone and what is also fantastic for us is we get a chance to really open up the throttles on these big 60ft race boats thanks to our roller-furling headsails and easily managed kites. In fact, we’d say the sailing is some of the best in the world. It’s just the parties sponsored by Heineken that are the problem! Every night there is another beach, bar, tent or open-air stage with another band playing and another village of beer tents somewhere with people dancing all night long- Lots to take in as you can imagine.

With our round the world professional crew Spartan Ocean Racing is the safe, fun way to sail big, fast boats in a pair of legendary regattas with a world-famous party reputation, all without having to go cold-turkey yourself to run your own boat & crew.
