The St.Maarten St.Martin Multihull Regatta will take place on 26 February, for all boats with more than one hull. It will be the 2nd edition. With a course around the island it will have record breaking potential.
The organization of the Multihull Regatta is happy to announce that Budget Marine has become involved with the event for its 2nd edition. Budget Marine will support the race with trophies for the winners in each class and technical equipment for the race committee.
“With the regatta in its second year the event is building and does not have a huge financial backing yet. So we are grateful for every contribution we receive” Mirian Ebbers, the Coordinator comments.
Last year 15 multihulls participated in 4 classes, from beach cats to the impressive trimarans like Karibuni from Pinel Island. Participants came from St.Maarten, SaintMartin, St.Barths & Canada.
“The target for this year is 20 boats and participants from all surrounding islands including the BVI’s. Already 11 boats have committed to racing, 8 beach cats and 3 other multihulls so we are right on track here.”
The start and finish will be in Simpson Bay and can be viewed from the beach at Kim Sha and further down at Mary’s Boon & Karakter.
