Celebrating its 35th year, the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is a 'must do' event during the Caribbean sailing season - and certainly one of our favourites!
In 2014 over 200 boats took part in 3 days of world class racing in St Maarten and 2015 looks set to be another great event.
As well as 4 days of racing, including the Gill Commodore's Cup, there are 4 fantastic party nights put on by Heineken providing ice cold beer alongside world-famous musicians. Past acts have included the Black Eyed Peas and Wyclef Jean!
As it is not possible to reach St Maarten directly from the UK, we offer you the opportunity to help deliver the yacht from Antigua to St Maarten. This typically is a 12-14 hour journey and a great way to get to know the boat and your fellow crew members.
Arrive in Antigua on Tuesday 3rd March ready to leave early on Wednesday morning. We will arrive in St Maarten by the evening ready to enjoy a relaxing first night with good food and rum punch!
On Thursday we will head out for a full day of training to prepare us for the start of racing on Friday. We will continue racing hard throughout the regatta and hopefully racking up some great results whilst enjoying the evenings entertainment, culminating in the big party on Sunday night.
On Monday we will head back accross to Antigua ready for you to catch your flight home on Tuesday with many a tale to tell of a fantastic week sailing and racing in the Caribbean.
The 35th St Maarten Heineken Regatta takes place between the 5-8 March 2015 so come and join us!
Our Corby 45 INCISOR gives you the opportunity to race or cruise at speed on a Grand Prix Ocean Racing Yacht.
Although Incisor has been designed for optimum race performance she still offers a better level of accommodation than is normal for these high performance yachts.
She is available for all offshore and inshore races and regattas, and has already proved to be a regular race winner. Incisor is ideal for corporate sailing and race training and team building.
She sails with a crew of up to 14 people and as she is skippered they can come with any level of experience.
The crew will be made up with people such as yourselves who are enthusiastic about sailing racing and winning - and enjoying themselves!
We do not require any previous racing experience as crew will be trained and coached in all aspects of racing a high performance yacht. Whilst we do not ask for previous racing experience it is important that any one intending to race on Incisor has a reasonable level of fitness. Some of the tasks involved can be physically demanding! But don’t let this put you off because we will be working together as a team covering all aspects of sailing:-
Helming at all points of sail
Sail trim especially asymmetric spinnaker trimming
Effective boat handling techniques (upwind and downwind)
Watch systems and living aboard
Use of modern navigation and routing systems
We offer 7 days charter of Incisor starting and finishing in Antigua and including a skipper and experienced crew members.
Included in the price are all mooring and race entry fees as well as food and drink whilst on board. Full insurance and damage waiver for the yacht is also included.
The price is:
£695 per person.
Discounts will be available for group bookings or whole boat charters.
Please contact us for more details.
We look forward to hearing from you!
