A Heineken Regatta option...

The best party of the year is always the Heineken Regatta as well as being the best racing venue anywhere...Not that I am a huge fan of yacht racing which is more often than not rich people behaving badly in my experience. The Heineken is one of the exceptions and is well worth the trip.

One of the boats that will be here for the regatta is Fortuna which is something of an odd duck in the charter fleet where comfort over performance is the norm. Fortuna kicks some serious butt and wears its ex-Maxi class heritage proudly while striking fear into the hearts of Swans everywhere... I've always liked this boat as it style and performance is one of a kind.

What's even better is Fortuna is doing a cabin charter for the week of February 28 to March 8, 2009 starting and ending in St. Martin - explore the anchorages in the area and participate in the Heineken Regatta for the last 3 days. Which at 1.900 Euros per person just may be the best deal going (Well if you want to sail fast, kick serious ass and have fun doing it...) anywhere in the Caribbean!
