The 10th Annual Captain Oliver's Regatta is around the corner!

Captain Oliver’s Regatta presents to you a fabulous weekend of entertainment and racing at Captain Oliver’s Resort in Oyster Pond, with three days of fun and two days action packed sailing. Aside from the sailing, visitors can take in the ambience enjoying the waterfront facilities at Captain Oliver’s Resort where the marina becomes alive.

The sails of the first regatta were hoisted in 2005 by Olivier Lange, alias Captain Oliver, for local sailors from mainly St. Maarten/St. Martin and St. Barths. Since then it has become a yearly returning 3-day event scheduled in mid-May, with several categories, such as Racing monohull, Performance monohull, Cruising monohull, Racing multihull, Cruising multihull and beachcat. The organizing committee is aiming at approximately 20-30 entries of mostly local sailors from French and Dutch St. Martin, as well as neighbouring Anguilla and St. Barths. 

The courses for this year’s regatta will be the traditional course around St. Martin scheduled for Saturday and Sunday’s course will be set in the St. Barths Channel.

Budget Marine has been a sponsor of the event for the last five years, rewarding all winners in the different categories with giftcertificates. Most importantly we love to participate and bring in the win!

The picturesque surroundings of the Marina and the great atmosphere of Captain Oliver’s Restaurant and Marina, The 10th Annual Captain Oliver’s Regatta is guaranteed to live up to its theme “La Joie de Vivre” and provide a weekend of great entertainment and festivity – On water and on land.
