With regatta organizers celebrating 35 years of Serious Fun, Shipwreck Shops rose to the occasion and have produced a line worthy of this remarkable celebration.
Shipwreck Shops supplies the event with a variety of cotton products and will focus this year on the "Serious Fun" theme of the Heineken Regatta. The merchandise is already available at all Shipwreck Shops on island and will be available for purchase at regatta registration and also on all venue locations.
Shipwreck Shops has been a sponsor of the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta for more than 15 years, providing a variety of merchandise. Starting out with simple t-shirts, they have evolved the line over the years and have introduced the HR branding to the regatta gear. For the 35th edition of the event, they have taken the cotton wear to another level: the 2015 collection features brand new designs and improved quality.
Shipwreck's GM, Flavia da Silva explains: "This is the first time we have come out with a completely different line. We are not focusing on the 'HR brand' anymore but instead we are creating a 'Serious Fun' promotion, through new and innovative art work. We have two different suppliers producing the line with guaranteed quality: MV Sports, the US Open golf provider, and AHEAD Sports gear, top supplier of caps and polo's. This year we will also introduce some original items such as the famous MV blankets and sweaters. In addition we are concentrating on quality and fun, and the colors are amazing this year".
