Experience the exhilaration of America's Cup yacht racing aboard Dennis Conner's cup-winning Stars & Stripes or contenders Canada II or True North IV. The St. Maarten America's Cup 12-Metre Regatta offers you the only opportunity in the Caribbean to race these exotic multimillion-dollar America's Cup boats.
Today you'll compete in a race around a shortened America's Cup course, and you will be invited to work the boat. The experienced crew provides all the guidance you need to grind a winch, trim a sail, and punch a stopwatch. You'll have a chance to take the helm and steer the boat after the race is completed. Or you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy what is perhaps the most exclusive sporting event in the world. The best part is, no previous sailing experience is required. All you need is a spirit of adventure to have the time of your life.
Refreshments are provided, and a rum punch party rounds out this spectacular event as you browse the 12-Metre Regatta boutique.
Guests who wish walk into town (time permitting; a ten-minute walk) to shop or explore independently are welcome to do so, but you must make your own way back to the ship.
Please note: No previous sailing experience is required. There are no restrooms on the yachts. Soft-soled shoes are required. Bring a towel and sunscreen. The regatta takes place in Philipsburg – a 30- to 45-minute unguided motorcoach drive from Marigot. Minimum age is 9 years.
