Did You Know?

12 Metre Class sail boats are so called NOT because of their overall length, but because they must conform to a formula! The formula takes into consideration various measurements of the vessel and the result must not exceed 12 metres. In fact, these sailboats are approximately 70 feet long with 86 foot masts and weigh in at approximately thirty-five tons.

Your America's Cup Challenge

At 12 Metre Challenge St. Maarten, we run head to head races (called "challenges") daily, seven days per week. For live scheduling and seat availability, click here.

As our guest, you can choose to actively participate - griding winches, trimming sails, punching a stop watch - or you can sit back and enjoy the invigorating ride! The choice is yours.

For everyone ages 12 and up. No prior sailing experience is necessary. Our expert crew will provide all the knowledge you and your party will need as "crew members".
