St. Maarten Heineken Regatta 2006
St. Maarten

The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta scheduled for 3-5 March 2006 is now included as an event of the 2006 US-IRC Gulf Stream Series. St Maarten's 26th annual Heineken Regatta joins the BVI Regatta and Rolex International Regatta as the only Caribbean events in the series that begins in Florida, USA with Ft. Lauderdale to Key West on 11 January and concludes with the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club Anniversary in Hamilton Bermuda on 23 June.
Entry information for the Gulf Stream Series is HERE or at For the St.Maarten Heineken Regatta entry details go to Entry in the series can be made up to the time of the first series event that a boat enters.

The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta had originally been included in the series but had been dropped from the series by mistake when event director Mirian EBBERS' computer caught a virus and she lost communication with the organizers.

The Heineken Regatta and the BVI Regatta are both part of the Caribbean Big Boat Series for boats over 60 feet. According to EBBERS one sailor who enjoys the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta and the Caribbean Big Boat series, too, is American Robbie HAINES. HAINES has been to St. Maarten before with a couple of Roy DISNEY's (USA) Pyewackets, but for 2006 he is coming back with Randal PITTMAN's (USA) Ed DUBOIS designed 90 foot, canting keel hot shot, Genuine Risk.

They will be lining up against Hasso PLATTNER's (GER) Morning Glory and Tom HILL's (PUR) Titan 12 - two swing keels against the conventional appendage attached to Titan.
