The Sint Maarten Yacht Club, organizers of the CMC are celebrating the remarkable growth of multihull sailing worldwide by continuing to host this exciting event. Every year, technological advances enable new and older multihulls to become faster, safer and more comfortable in all kinds of winds. As in the previous editions, this highly regarded event in 2023 will introduce new features to continually entertain and challenge all of the varied entrants into this growing regatta event. Brand new - or classic — all cats and tri’s are welcome! (For more information on programs and events organized by the Sint Maarten Yacht Club click here.)
Two new features are on tap for 2023.
Around Saba Dash: which is a 52 mile power reach for CSA 1 boats starting in Simpson Bay heading south to and around Saba; and then north back to the finish in Simpson Bay. This CSA 1 race sponsored by the Sint Maarten Tourist Bureau will join the now two-year old Caribbean 60 Mile Multihull Sprint sponsored by FKG Rigging. Other classes will be offered other challenging race courses sailing mostly in Sint Maarten’s south side waters. One day of the three will see the famous around island race for all entrants.
Cruising Multihull Rally: In answer to all of those who want to participate in CMC fun but who do not race, we now offer a Cruising Multihull Rally. This Rally will run concurrently with the Racing but on very different courses. Day one will be a cruise to Road Bay on Anguilla for afternoon beach games and fun with opportunities for fine dining at Roy’s and then late-night carousing at the legendary Elvis Beach Bar. Day two will offer a sail to Anse Marcel for more afternoon games and evening dining and partying. Day three will have the Rally boats heading back to Simpson Bay for prize giving and a gala wrap up party.
