What makes the Heineken regatta such as great event that we keep returning to it? It could be due to the awesome turquoise colour of the water around St Martin, it could be the great mix of intense windward leeward racing mixed with short coastal racing (very tactical) or it could be the superb nightlife, great bands both local and international, or perhaps it’s the beer. Most definitely it’s February and if you ain’t in the Caribbean then you are way too cold!
