280--St. Maarten: The Heineken Regatta 2005
@ CherieSpotting     Mar 07 2005 - 20:15 PST
cherie writes: It happens once a year. Sailors from all over the world invade the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Maarten. Between the 3 days of racing, they drink as much Heineken as possible. The island is full of drinkers with sailing problems.

This year the Newport Beach based crew sponsored by "HiHo-BVI Yacht Charters" took 2nd place, while our friends on "Justice" took home the first place trophy.

Here are some of the racing photos!
