My sons did the America's Cup Regatta in St. Mart. and said it was fabulous! They wanted to go right back and do it again.

I did the one in St. Maarten as well and had a great time, be prepared to work hard if you are part of the crew an it gets competitive to win. I plan on doing this again on my next visit if possible.

I have only done the one in St. Maarten and it was fabulous! Our group drew the Stars and Stripes, and we beat True North. My DH was a grinder, and I got to be a winch wench! On the way back into the harbor I was able to be at the helm for a while. Can you imagine the thrill of being at the helm of THE boat that won the REAL America's Cup? Fabulous!

I have pictures in my signature if you'd like to take a look.
