With the successful conclusion of the 38th annual Heineken Regatta, the organizers have announced that they raised a total of US $7500 throughout the Regatta weekend for relief and rebuilding. Due to the massive hit St. Maarten took during the 2017 hurricane season, the Regatta committee decided that the 2018 edition would focus on helping the island to recover. The “Serious Fun” Slogan was changed to “Serious Fundraising” to reflect the purpose of the event, raising funds for community organizations.
“We would like to thank the Heineken Regatta crew for the opportunity to be a part of such an important event on the island. As a non-profit, we appreciate not only the fundraising done on our behalf but also the opportunity to showcase our projects to those attending the event.
