St. Maarten 12 Metre Challenge
Zip, tack and jibe across the crystalline Caribbean waters on a high-performance sailboat. Excursions on the boats that race in the famous regatta include sailing instruction for those who are interested. Depending on interest, ability and experience, seafaring visitors can pull lines and trim sails. Those who are along for the ride are welcome to enjoy the thrill of the experience at sea without actively participating. “Races” conclude with a celebratory rum punch.
