Pam Morris and her team from the US, the runner up from last year again are taking part, as are Canadian teams. Nico Cortlever with his boat NIX is entered for the first time. The two committee boats are completing the fleet.
Still forming are some other teams in Holland and Sint Maarten/Saint Martin.

The Golden Rock regatta is featured prominently on many Dutch sailing enthusiast's calendars and now growing in popularity with US based sailors and Canadian based sailors. Local sailors are also showing interest and are already looking at their schedules to take the time off to race. This regatta has also featured on the popular European TV Sailing Channel and many prominent sailing magazines and publications.
