St.Maarten-St.Martin Classic Yacht Regatta 2013 canceled

It is with much disappointment that we have to announce the cancellation of the 2013 St.Maarten-St.Martin Classic Yacht Regatta.
During the past weeks we have received information from several ( six up to now ) yachts that they are not able to participate in the regatta if we can not provide a regatta charter.
We are a yachtclub and regatta organization, NOT a charter broker ( although personally I am a broker but that has nothing to do with this regatta )
In the old days, people used to participate in regattas for the fun, now it seems that they want to do a regatta only when they can make money.
This is a heavy decision and I am not happy with it, but I think that it is wise that we don’t want to organize a classic regatta anymore with only a few boats and have the risk that our sponsors are not happy with the return in exposure.
In addition it will cost a lot of money and effort to organize this regatta for just a few boats.
We will of course reimburse the sponsors who have paid already money or have made caps, T-shirts etc. or booked airline tickets for journalists, hotels that made bookings etc.

Thank you all who have worked to set up this regatta and helped out, and thank you to the yachts that really committed to sail the regatta, even with no charter.
We'll see you hopefully during the Antigua Classics.


Welcome to the Divi Little Bay Beach Resort Page



Divi Little Bay Beach Resort is located on a private peninsula between two beautiful bays in Dutch St. Maarten, minutes from the Caribbean's best shopping and dining, though it feels worlds apart.
The resort wraps around a soft, wide arc of white sand washed by the gentle waves of St. Maarten's Little Bay. 
The pristine blue water is a perfect complement to the resort’s pastel exteriors and striking terra cotta rooflines.
Guests of Divi Little Bay Beach Resort enjoy spacious hilltop suites and beachfront guestrooms, a host of amenities, and a full service staff to help them explore the multi-cultural charms of St. Maarten. 
The property offers three restaurants, tennis courts, spa, water sports centre, grocery store and shops.

Divi Little Bay Beach Resort offers a one week regatta package deal with rates starting at $199 + tax per night, including breakfast for two.
The regular rate is at $249 per night + tax and excluding breakfast so the classic regatta week rates are heavily reduced.

Guests that book a week in Divi Little Bay Beach Resort, from Monday March 25th until Monday April 1, 2013, will also receive complimentary vouchers for space on a catamaran spectator boat during the regatta and VIP invitations to the official opening party and closing ceremony of the Classic Regatta. 

“We intend to make this a very special week for our guests at Divi Little Bay,”
said EJ Schanfarber, president of Divi Resorts.
