• One of the crew of the 12 Metre Challenge stands ready to race!

    Hello, I’m Colin Percy, and the St. Maarten 12-Metre Challenge is my brainchild. I’m a Canadian businessman who moved to the Caribbean twenty years ago when my doctor told me to slow down, insisting that I needed “a change of lifestyle.” So, I took his advice. Following a lifelong love of sailing that started at the age of seven, I moved to Philipsburg, on the Dutch side of St. Maarten, and purchased the most elite craft in the world of sailing: the 12-meter boat, like the ones used in the America's Cup race. After buying the Canadian racers Canada II and True North I and IV, I then set my sights on one of the best known vessels in the world: Dennis Conner's Stars and Stripes, winner of the 1987 America's Cup.

    Dennis Conner's decision for us to have the boat here gives American sailors a lot of pleasure. People who never thought they would set foot on an America's Cup boat are emulating the America's Cup race. When Stars and Stripes '87 moved to Saint Maarten, Conner estimated that only 30 sailors had ever raced aboard the vessel. Out of the millions of sailors around the world, there are no more than 700 very elite sailors who have raced America's Cup yachts.

    The company now comprises approximately thirty young sailors from various parts of the world who find in our organization the camaraderie of a strong team environment in which initiative, hard work and putting the customer first are encouraged and rewarded.

Do not a lot of money to buy a house? Don't worry, just because it's available to take the mortgage loans to solve such problems. Therefore get a car loan to buy everything you want.
