March 25, 2011 by NJyachtcharters

It is time again for the St. Barths Bucket Regatta, and this year is the 25th year for the St. Barths Bucket, and so is the 25th Anniversary Regatta year for this prestigious event which marks a yearlong celebration for the St. Barths and Newport Bucket Regattas. The St. Barths Bucket kicks off this year with the Captain’s Meeting at 1700 on March 24, for race information, followed by an Owner’s Reception. And then three days of super sailing yacht racing continues for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, culminating in the Awards Ceremony on Sunday, March 27 at 1830.

Each day of racing has a first gun at 1100, with different race courses set. At the end of the day is a daily award ceremony, with the overall awards presented on Sunday evening. At the end of each day’s racing it is off for fun on the docks for evening Bucket events each night. This year, as with almost every year, the St. Barths Bucket is fully subscribed with race entries, which, for this year, the 25th Anniversary, are as follows:
