Find out more about payments

The Heineken Regatta celebrates it’s 40th birthday in 2020, and if previous years (and previous anniversary editions) are anything to go by, this will be an unforgettable regatta. Renowned for its high-end racing, clear breeze, awesome ashore side social scene, and bridge lift opening competitions, Sint Maarten regatta rates highly on the Caribbean regatta bucket list. With one day of training and 4 days of racing, this regatta is slightly shorter than most on the circuit, allowing you to make the most out of your annual leave allowance!

Trip Start: 04 March 2020
