UPDATE: Heineken St Maarten

Captain Tom wrote today – he’s back from the Heineken St Maarten Regatta after racing aboard S/Y Mischievous. He’s going to send some photos he took of the overall winner in his class, S/Y Chippawa – which I’ll post – as well he'll be writing about the experience on his weblog when he gets settled.

The Heineken St Maarten is, in my opinion, the most singular Caribbean Spring Regatta being held today. I’ve done it three times – all in the late 1990’s and all aboard the maxi Javelin – and it’s always a tremendous bit of jubilation complemented by a program that reflects the dedication to sailing that the organizers at the Sint Maarten Yacht Club brings to the occasion. There are more famous regattas, namely Antigua Race week, but the Heineken is hard to beat.

Stay tuned for more detail…
