Heineken Regatta

By Lynn Fitzpatrick


March 7, 2010 (Sint Maarten) - Over 2,500 sailors and their friends enjoyed spectacular sailing conditions, a variety of courses and diverse entertainment during the four-night and three-day 30th Annual Heineken Regatta.

The whole world had their eyes on the racing in the Spinnaker 1 Division to see which ultralight would win when they Titan 15!, Highland Fling and Rambler clashed for the first time. The
Heineken Regatta victory went to Tom Hill's Titan 15!, a Reichel/Pugh 75, which posted three first and two second place finishes. Vela Veloce, Canada's Richard Oland's Southern Cross 52 corrected out over Rambler, Highland Fling, Privateer and Equation in the six-boat division. Titan 15! wins!
Fritz Duda's Sin Duda! handily took the Spinnaker 2 Division.

KH + P Let Me Go and Coco de Mer won the Bareboat 6 and Gunboat Divisions with perfect scores.


Grenada, West Indies (17 February, 2010) - Due to an unforeseen emergency, the 2010 Race Committee regretfully announces that the 2010 Grenada Round-the-Island Race event, scheduled to take place on 12-14 of March, has been cancelled. The unfortunate cancelling of this event was not a decision that was made lightly or easily. It was a decision that was necessary due solely to an internal emergency that has made it impossible for the Committee to move forward with the event as planned.

Grenada Round-the-Island Race


Grenada, West Indies (20 November, 2009) - At the 2009 Grenada Round-the-Island Race (GRIR), the trimaran Horizon Region Guadeloupe shattered the race course record, slashing more than an hour off the previous record by crossing the finish line with an elapsed time of 3 hours, 54 minutes and 2 seconds. This new sailing record raises the bar of competition for the 2010 GRIR and poses an exciting challenge for boats everywhere. As such, the Grenada South Coast Yacht Club has responded by creating a prestigious prize for any vessel that breaks the record, upping the stakes for the 2010 GRIR!

grenada-round-the-island.jpgGRENADA ROUND-THE-ISLAND RACE (October 15, 2008) Grenada - The historic and prestigious Grenadian sailing event is getting wind in her sails, returning for our 2009 race! The 7th Annual Grenada Round-the-Island Race kicks off on March 13th on the magnificent Grand Anse Beach, presented by the Grenada South Coast Yacht Club (GSCYC). This year's race hosts a ton of exciting water sports competitions-in addition to the main race there will be a youth boating exhibition, not to mention the Bath Tub Derby brought back by popular demand. But the climax of the weekend activities, from March 13th to the 15th, will no doubt be the greeting of the crews after a long all day sail around the island followed by a huge Post Race Ceremony, Party and Prize Giving. Special acts to be announced!
In addition to a lot of fun in the sun, there will be a tribute to Peter Spronk's legacy which we hope will raise funds for the first annual GSCYC's youth sailing scholarship.
