Flying into St Martin, Crewing back to Bermuda Question

Next month I will be crewing on a passage from St Martin to Bermuda.
Flying to St. Martin (SXM-Dutch) from the US and flying back from Bermuda.
According to St. Martin's website I need to show a return ticket to gain entry.
Anybody with similar experience care to confirm or advise otherwise?
If necessary I'll book a refundable return ticket to satisfy the requirement , though I'd prefer not to if it can be avoided.
Thanks

Re: Flying into St Martin, Crewing back to Bermuda Question

When flying one way into countries for a delivery I brought a letter of engagement from the company or owner. I had to produce it a couple of times but had no troubles. I can't comment on what St. Martin will or won't accept, but perhaps you can email or call them and ask.

Captains letter, crew manifest, and a copy of entry clearance of the boat into St.Martin should do it.
That being said be prepared to buy a fully refundable ticket on the spot.
Whims of the gate agent.
We just had a crew held up at Bahamas customs until we got him
copy of the cruising permit
Cheers

I have done deliveries from St Martin. A copy of the delivery contract was all I needed. Unless things go haywire the only check her will be at the checkin counter for the airline. I assume a letter from the Captain, and a copy of the boat’s clearance papers will serve to show you have a way off the island.
