Bobby Velasquez has responded to government's increase in Sint Maarten's bridge and lagoon anchoring fees
by moving the Classic
(January event) to Great Bay, Sint Maarten from the previous site at Simpson Bay.
By making this move, sailors will avoid paying the higher fees
to enter the lagoon
through the bridge and the higher anchoring
fees in the lagoon.
