Budget Marine Cup
As of this year, Budget Marine will offer the overall prize for the Yachts, Beach Cat and Sunfish classes. Only one winner will be selected by a jury that will decide based on the competitiveness of the class and the time gap between the winner and the rest of the class. This winner will be awarded a prize with a value of Afl. 1.000.
The traditional ‘Around Aruba Race’ will be sailed on Friday August 12. Yachts can also join for the fun-rally. Cups will be awarded for the winners in the yachting classes, line honours for the sailing yachts in competition will be awarded with the notorious barrel of Mount Gay Rum.
Yacht races on Saturday August 13 and Sunday August 14 will constitute a series of 4 shorter races (12 – 20 miles). The results of these races will decide the rankings of the regatta competition. This year, an overall Budget Marine cup will be awarded. Classes competing for this cup are yachts, beach cats and sunfish.
