St.Maarten Heineken Regatta entrants are eligible for waived registration fees during the next year's regatta. Organizers are pleased with the early entries thus far and have prepared an early registration campaign to encourage participants to enter the event. Candidates must register online at Heineken Regatta or with the regatta office directly in order to be eligible.

This campaign started when boat owners entered the regatta at the HISWA boat show in Amsterdam earlier this month. Several competitors took advantage of the campaign and earned themselves a free entry to the event. Congratulations goes out to Fedde Andela, Harry Aarsse, Ed van den Heuvel and Michel Schavemaker who were all early entrants and will take part in the 2014 event, while having their entry fee waived.

The Sint Maarten Yacht Club Regatta Foundation, organizers of the event, are pleased to extend the offer to those competitors that were not able to make it to the boat show. In addition there are other great prizes for boats registering early;

The next five entries to officially register online or through the regatta office will earn themselves a waived entry fee for the regatta.

The next five regional boats (Registered in the Caribbean) will receive an official 2014 regatta t-shirt at registration.

The next three boats that enter online and that will participate the ARC (Atlantic Rally of Cruisers) this year will receive a free t-shirt upon presenting proof of participation at registration in St.Maarten. (Please put ARC info in the comments section of your registration form)

There are already two boats registered that are also taking part in the ARC in 2014. Sailboat 'Khalessi' skippered by Mikkel Hagelund of Norway, is joined by his friends and will be participating in both events as well as Belgium skipper Dirk Vael, sailing aboard 'Gabian IV'. Regatta organizers want to wish them safe passage and look forward to seeing these competitors at registration where their t-shirt awaits them.

For over three decades, the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta has showcased the top boats and sailing-and has become equally famous for its world-class slate of parties and musical entertainment-in the Caribbean. Now recognized by sailors around the planet as one of the sailing world's best regattas, each year the event lives up to its worthy motto: Serious Event website

Underdogs and top dogs sniff out the best breeze at 52 Super Series
In a shifting light-breeze which kept tacticians on their toes, home favourites Azzurra scored their first race win. The gentle breeze moved 50 degrees right over the duration of the race, requiring successive changes to the course axis on each leg of race three of the series. It proved a good day for the underdogs too as XIO and Paprec, two of the oldest boats in the fleet, scrapped over the early lead.
