The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta have announced that the 39th edition will be held at the Princess Port de Plaisance Resort, Casino and the Yacht Club. In addition to its central, secure and convenient location, the Yacht Club Port de Plaisance is offering 35 free slips in their South Basin for competitors.

“We are happy to announce that this year, the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta will take place on the same venue as the 2018 edition. The regatta village will be centralized in one spot, at the Port de Plaisance Resort. The village will contain all the essentials of a great regatta venue: docking, registration, regatta offices, food stands, retail shops, craft vendors, live music, beer tents, entertainment, daily prize giving, and of course world-class concerts,” said Michele Korteweg, general manager of the Sint Maarten Yacht Club.

Speaking on behalf of the Princess Port de Plaisance Resort and Casino and The Yacht Club at Port de Plaisance, general manager Jeff Boyd said they were delighted with the renewed partnership for 2019. “We are happy to be part of this island-changing event and feel lucky to welcome everyone to the most exciting warm-water regatta in the world,” Mr Boyd said.

The Yacht Club at Port de Plaisance is offering free dockage during the week of the regatta in the South Basin for competing boats. These will be assigned on a first-come basis to fully-paid entries. The Sol water taxi and shuttle services will run regularly to key locations including the Sint Maarten Yacht Club during the regatta.
