The 34th St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is proud to announce Australian Gold as a new sponsor of the Regatta. Everyone needs to look after their skin when they are out in the sun, especially when sailing in the Caribbean. Having Australian Gold supporting the regatta just helps to remind everyone to slap that sunscreen on!  



As Wayne Wilkie, the local distributor of Australian Gold, explains: ”I think that it is great exposure that our suncare brand gets, this is one of the best advertisements you can get, along with all the different people from all over the world coming in”.        


Australian Gold has been the market leader in suncare products for over 25 years and has a large presence on St. Maarten, available in a variety of stores Island wide. They offer a wide range of lotions to protect the skin as well as soothe after too much time in the sun and wind.  


Participants of the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta will find sachets of Australian Gold in their Skippers Bags to ensure protection from the sun during the 3 days of racing in this challenging event. In addition, our volunteers will be taken good care of as well with some lovely goodies.


For over three decades, the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta has showcased the top boats and sailing has become equally famous for its world-class slate of parties and musical entertainment in the Caribbean. Now recognized by sailors around the planet as one of the sailing world’s best regattas, each year the event lives up to its worthy motto: Serious Fun.
