The 44th Heineken St. Maarten Regatta started with moderate breezes and plenty of sun on day one, then the fleet enjoyed the iconic Round Island Race in a breezy 15-20 knots.

The eight-boat CSA 5 Division saw a familiar team at the top of the leaderboard after four days. Starting with two bullets on the first day, Jordan Mindich’s J/105 SOLSTICE counted four firsts and three seconds for their score of 10 points net. For more event information, visit
