    What happened to the St. Maarten Yacht Club? That was the only way I could find the bridge opening!

    It hurts when they move your way points.

    Be on D Island In March

    March. Heineken Regatta!!!!

    Heineken Regatta SXM

    275 boats in the regatta plus a couple hundred cruisers. Not to forget the 100 plus Megayachts and the aircraft. BBJ's, 767, 757, GV, GIV, GIII, GII,

    Neil, you mentioned New Years Eve in St Maarten... We all read about St Barths being a trendy place to be, but I havnt heard about St Maarten before. Where on St Maarten is the best place to be??

    There are several fireworks shows La Samana, Marigot and Orient Beach on the French side with Maho and Philipsburg on the Dutch Side. Pick a spot on the Dutch side, easier traffic.

    From what I read La Samanna is a nice hotel... are there fun bars in the same area to visit, or is it purely the hotel which is the attraction?
