The non-sailor’s guide to having some #SeriousFun at the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta

There is no other sailing event that makes visiting sailors and St. Maarten locals more excited than the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta. Why? It’s simple really:

Parties; Check.
Concerts with international artists; Check.
Flowing Heineken beer; Check.

Every first weekend of March, St. Maarten’s population all but doubles when the island receives an influx of professional sailors, sailing aficionados, spectators and those who simply come down for some Serious Fun in the sun.

I must admit though that I shockingly found myself enjoying this year’s Dutch St. Maarten Carnival. I was dragged by friends out of my bed at four in the morning to take part in this year’s jouvert, a parade that starts at dawn and ends sometime around midday and leaves a trail of drunks in its wake. I found myself in the village on at least one occasion enjoying the different food and drink booths and I surprised myself by attending the grand parade, an event so colorful I am still smiling days later.

Just because of three little words:
