19th - 22nd Mar 2015
The 20th edition of St Barths Bucket Regatta promises to be an enthralling event, taking place over 4 days from 19th to 22nd March 2015.
Originally launched in 1995 with just four competitors, the St Barths Bucket Regatta will once again be organised by the Bucket Association. Today the event is one of the most eagerly anticipated on the regatta calendar, with 30 yachts competing against each other around the beautiful islands of St Barths.
One of the first regattas of 2015, participants over 31m will set sail around the island in a gripping race, each showcasing the excellent performance of their yachts. It is not solely the race which attracts visitors to the Caribbean at this time of year, a myriad of social events accompany the regatta - creating a hive of activity in St Barth's Gustavia Harbour. St Barths is the quintessential place to network and celebrate the beginning of a new regatta season.
