“I was going home one evening and I stopped at Richardson Motors to buy gas and that’s when I decided to pick up a six-pack of Heineken beer because my brother was returning home from overseas and we needed to have a drink together to celebrate”, said an excited Rondale Dowers. “I filled out the entry form and drop it in the promotion box, therefore, I was so surprised last Saturday when someone said that they heard an announcement on the radio that I was the winner. I did not take it serious, however, on Monday when I got a call from the Brewery informing me that I was the winner I just freeze up because I was in a state of shock”.

The VIP package includes: a three-night stay in a double room at Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, breakfast included; round trip airfare St. Vincent/St. Maarten; transportation to and from the airport and hotel and to all VIP events; dinners at world-class St. Maarten restaurants; full access to all VIP areas at concerts featuring Orange Grove, Oungku & Red Hot, Explosion band and Wyclef Jean.

“As one of the world’s most popular events, the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta presents a terrific opportunity for the Vincentian consumer to experience an unforgettable VIP weekend – one that only Heineken can provide” said Dominic Brisbane, Heineken Brand Manager at St. Vincent Brewery Limited. “The regatta, whose motto is “Serious Fun”, is almost unique in its ability to gather top sailors from around the world, bringing everyone together in one of the most renowned weekend escapes, with world -class sailing, extreme partying, and international music performances such as Wyclef Jean; delicious Caribbean cuisine, and lots of cold Heineken Beers”.

The 2011 St. Maarten Heineken Regatta took place on the beautiful dual-nation island of St. Maarten on Thursday, March 3, through Sunday, March 6.

Heineken is the most widely distributed premium beer brand in the world and is marketed by St. Vincent Brewery Limited, Campden Park.
