St. Martin's events : Captain Oliver's Regatta

captain oliver regatta saint martin 18-19 May 2013 : 9th annual Captain Oliver's Regatta


Captain Oliver’s Regatta presents to you a fabulous weekend of entertainment and racing at Captain Oliver’s Resort in Oyster Pond, with three days of fun and action packed sailing, presented by Coors Light as the main sponsor and partner in the event.
Aside from the sailing, visitors can take in the ambience enjoying the waterfront facilities at Captain Oliver’s Resort where the marina becomes alive.

The sails of the first regatta were hoisted in 2005 by Olivier Lange, alias Captain Oliver, for local sailors from mainly St. Maarten/St. Martin and St. Barths.
Since then it has become a yearly returning 3-day event scheduled in mid-May, with several categories, such as Racing monohull, Bareboat, Performance monohull, Cruising monohull, Racing multihull, Cruising multihull, Beachcat and the 1-Design class. The organizing committee is aiming at approximately 30-40 entries.

Sailors from afar can enter the race through one of our package deals in the 1-Design Class, which consists of 44’Jenneau chartered from Sunsail, which also caters for our local sailors, who have the crew, but not the boat.

The courses for this year’s regatta will be the traditional course around St. Martin scheduled for Saturday and Sunday’s course will be set in the St. Barths Channel.
On Saturday there will also be an optimist race within The Oyster Pond lagoon, introducing the young aspiring sailors of St. Maarten/St. Martin to the regatta.

With Coors Light presenting the regatta, the picturesque surroundings of the Marina and the great atmosphere of Captain Oliver’s Restaurant and Marina, The 9th Annual Captain Oliver’s Regatta is guaranteed to live up to its theme “La Joie de Vivre” and provide a weekend of great entertainment and festivity – On water and on land.
