The fifth annual Budget Marine Match Racing Cup will take place two days before the start of the 33rd edition of the Sint Maarten Heineken Regatta on Tuesday February 26th 2013.
The event will take place just before what has become the Caribbean’s leading fleet regatta which is celebrating its 33rd edition..
Last year Caribbean Skipper Colin Rathbun rolled to victory In Budget Marine Match Racing Cup and topped David Storrs, a U.S. sailor based on Long Island Sound, by a score of 2-0 in the best-of-three finals.
The event precedes the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta which has for many years had the largest entry of Caribbean Regattas. The main event is preceded by a warm up regatta for Spinnaker boats called the Gill Commodores Cup. A timetable will be arranged so participants in the Match Racing have ample time to train on the fleet racing boats that they may wish to sail on in the main event.
More information to follow soon.
