According to the website it is not officially announced yet but unless something changes, I would expect it to be on Kim Sha.

I am aware of that but some years they have had two parties on Kim Sha and some years only one. Depends on if there is a party in Marigot.

I've heard repeated rumors that it won't be on Kim Sha this year because the Dutch government didn't pay the bills from last year. Odd that they haven't announced it on the website.

Dutch government hasn't paid the Heineken sponsors for the past two years, as far as I know. As to whether that will change where the parties are, who knows?

Based on what Aqua Mania has on their website (in conjunction with spectator boat trips), Saturday and Sunday are both listed as being on Kim Sha Beach. The Regatta website still does not have locations so take it for what it is worth.

I contacted the Regatta office and received the following reply:

Yes, both Saturday and Sunday will be on Kim Sha Beach again this year.

Supposedly the "official" Regatta magazine is due out next week and will contain the information on the parties. I would expect the website to be updated then also.

Thanks for posting. Couldn't really imagine that at least Sunday night wouldn't have been there and for them, I'm sure two nights in a row at the same place is a lot easier than a different place every night.

Correct. No mention of a Thursday party at PDP but perhaps that will be announced later.
