This year on August 15, 16 and 17 the sixth Aruba International Regatta will take place on Aruba. Three days of action and competition for yachts, beach cats, sunfishes, optimists, windsurfers and kite surfers; three evenings of music and parties for all participants and spectators.
The sailors will compete for the Budget Marine cup for the winner in the most competitive class. This cup will be awarded for the fourth time this year and has a value of afl. 1000. For the youngest sailors there will be optimist races and there will be down wind races for the kite surfers and wind surfers.
The success of last year’s event with over 40 sails on the water inspired the organization to take this year’s edition to a next level. At Surfside Beach, next to the airport, a regatta village will be built to ensure entertainment, music, food and beverage and a spectacular view on the races. The Aruba International Regatta is not only an event for the participants in the yacht races: the regatta village is a gathering point for people who want to enjoy a view of the races, have a relaxed afternoon on the beach or, of course, are looking for a beach party.
All events and races take place at Surfside Beach. Together with the other sponsors likeBudget Marine, ALBO, WEB-Aruba, Studio Advisory, Power Systems, ASD, ADCTRA,Zenitel, SEA-Aruba, this regatta will surely be an event you shouldn’t miss!
