In addition to four days of professional racing, they will also host four nights of free concerts with some of the world’s best musical entertainment.

This world renowned sailing event offers four days of World Class Racing, with trade winds coming from the North East, an average temperature of 25°C and crystal clear waters. This truly international event had a staggering 32 different countries represented during the Regatta. Courses will take participants along coastal races, as well as around the island, presenting the beautiful beaches, rock formations and other scenery. On shore participants and visitors will be able to enjoy the culture, cuisine and music from both the Dutch and French side.

The line up for Saturday is set to be myriad of sounds from around the region. The night begins with Orange Grove with performers from The Netherlands and St. Maarten, followed by Honeypot from Aruba and Ziggi Recado (Netherlands and St. Eustatius). Then it’s time for the crew from St. Thomas, for what will most certainly be an upbeat and fun performance by R. City.
