St. Martin: March 9, 2008

Heineken Regatta

Ok - so I realize that I never finished my St Martin posts. Since then I have been to St Lucia so I better get this posted...

So every year St Martin is inundated with sailors from all over the world. They come for the Heineken Regatta. This is a sailboat race but also a 4-day party. Each night a different town hosts a party. The last night finale was at Kim Sha beach which is within walking distance of the condo. This year Shaggy was performing. There was also a local steel pan band and Youth Waves, a local band that is a blend of salsa, soca and reggae. They also showed some of a new movie “The Pan Man: Rhythm of the Palms”. This film was written and filmed on the island.
