Where to Leave a Sloop in Sint Maarten

I want to leave my 35 ft sloop in Sint Maartin (or St Martin) and fly in monthly to go sailing. Can anyone recommend a good marina to do so? Either Dutch or French

Thank you in advance for your input.

IGY marina Simpson Bay Marina is in the lagoon on the Dutch side. The monthly rate is .65c per foot and all boats with sails removed were fine in Hurricane Gonzalo.

a fun marina. Where I would have my boat if i was doing what you are...

Thank you Mark. Sorry that I won't meet you as I won't be arriving until late November and as I understand it you'll be sailing (trans-Atlantic?) away in May.

Regards,
Ron

You might try the French side as the weak Euro will give you a good rate. There are three good marina on that side
