Sint Maarten Heineken Regatta
The favourable wind and clear seas around St Maarten make it the perfect place to host the Heineken Regatta, held each spring in Simpson Bay. Nearly 200 boats from around the world compete in 18 classes, ranging from high-tech racing yachts to pleasure cruisers. Non-sailors can join the fun as well, as top international bands like the Black-Eyed Peas and Wyclef Jean perform at parties around the island.
Venue: Simpson Bay
Date: 28 February to 3 March 2013
