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.
