What You Can Expect

St. Maarten 12 Metre Challenge

St. Martin's America's Cup 12 Metre Challenge

Make your way to Bobby's Marina in Philipsburg to meet your racing instructors. Make sure to wear soft-soled shoes appropriate for climbing around on board a million-dollar yacht.

Climb on board one of the yachts. You may sail on the True North IV, the Canada II, the True North I, or the Stars and Stripes, all of which have been contenders in the America's Cup in the past.

Undergo sailing instruction and a safety orientation before getting your crew assignment. You could be grinding a winch, punching a stop watch, or trimming a sail as you cruise through the Caribbean waters. If you're more of an observant type, just find a spot on board to relax and enjoy the complimentary refreshments. Learn about the history of yacht racing from your guides, which dates back to the 19th century.
