Heineken Regatta organization renews deals with loyal sponsors.POSTED: 02/24/15 1:34 AM
GREATBAY—The 35th St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is gearing up for another successful event and once again receives the support of its loyal sponsors. The Regatta office is proud to announce that all sponsors from last year continue their support of the largest sailing event in the Caribbean.
The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is renowned for its high quality sailing and the grand parties. It couldn’t be made possible without the support of loyal companies and organizations. Organizers often say ‘it takes a whole island to throw a party this big’. The continuation of these sponsorships with such recognised and dedicated companies on the island is something to be proud of.
The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta wouldn’t be the event it is now without its title sponsor Heineken. With Heineken onboard, the participants, visitors and local community are guaranteed to have 4 fantastic nights of parties. This year they went above and beyond and booked Tessanne Chin, winner of the Voice USA 2013, to perform on Saturday, and Kool and the Gang, multiple Grammy Award winners, for the Sunday night.
During the 2015 St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, Sol, premium supplier of petroleum products to the Caribbean basin, is again the official sponsor of the water taxi service. This is a unique service that transports sailors from their boats to shore and back during the 4 days of the Regatta.Another important partner of the Regatta is of course the St. Maarten Government. Together the Regatta and the Tourism Office work hard to promote St. Maarten as a destination.
Australian Gold, Heavenly Water and Penha provide high end products, not only for our participants, but they extend their support to our volunteers, making sure everyone is looked after. Seahawk, one of United States biggest nautical paint suppliers, helps the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta to promote the event worldwide at boat shows.
Windward Roads, Xerox, UTS and The Windward Islands Bank assist the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta from an operational perspective, ensuring high quality service prior and during the event for the organization and participants.
