Caribbean - St. Maarten - America's Cup Regatta

<< Previous St. Maarten Picture    Next St. Maarten Picture >>

No, this isn't the America's Cup Racing Yacht, it's the boat they use to ferry passengers out to the 2 sailboats used in the race. Only 18 people are allowed on this shore excursion at one time, so you will need to sign up early. Before you leave the shore, the group is divided into 2 teams of 9 each--one for each of the 12 meter sailboats that are being used that day. Everyone is assigned a job in the race, and it is real work! After getting our assignments for the race, we board this ferry for the trip out to the harbor at Philipsburg, St. Maarten to practice for a few minutes before we start the race.
