Great Trip. We had a wonderful time!! The staff was great and Captain Morgan did a great job teaching us to sail.
Loved it! Went just to sail on a 12 meter boat, ended up really enjoying the whole racing aspect.

I am a sailing enthusiast and going on this excursion was something I wanted to do for several years. I was NOT disappointed! The crew made sure everyone: understood what it takes to sail a boat like this we're comfortable and had a good time. I would not hesitate to recommend this trip to anyone sailors or non-sailors.
Very exhilarating! The people who opted out of sailing the boat got quite wet at the front. The ones at the back held on for dear life when the boat keeled over, so far that the water wet them up to their waists. The ones doing the work looked exhausted and had trouble staying in place with the boat keeled over so far.The crew rotated them to other positions when they began to look worn out. I would do it again. You need to keep in mind that this is a race. If you want a relaxing tour, take a catamaran trip.
The staff and crew were amazing and we had great weather conditions to really get the true racing experience. We would go again in a heartbeat!
Awesome experience. This was our second time sailing with the 12 meter challenge. We highly recommend this tour and will do it again the next time we are in St. Maarten. The staff and crew were very friendly.
Trip was great. Weather was perfect and the beaches and water were to die for. Best tours were the 12 meter yacht challenge (we won) and an all day snorkel tour with Billy Bones boat (our captain was Belage and he was the best - I highly recommend this tour as you get to see two sites, one with sea turtles, and another with a coral reef - also we had the best lunch ever). Finally, the absolute best place to eat on the island, based on location (right on the water), quality of food, service, and price is Cherterfields.
This is a must do for anyone going to St Maarten. You actually learn something and enjoy the thrill of the competition. You will want to do this again and again. The crew is great.
Experience of a lifetime to be on the actual 12M yachts! Staff/crew very nice. Easy location whether coming from cruise ship or driving in from resort.
Great experience and highly recommend. I remember watching these boats race in the 80's wishing I was on one of them. We sail little Sunfish and Zuma boats so it was fun being on a 12m racing yacht. We won our race by about a boat length, and I can assure you that on the last leg our captian was seriously wanting to win. I plan on doing it again if I ever get back to St. Maarten.
