Every year the world’s most spectacular superyachts gather in Gustavia’s harbor for the prestigious St. Barths Bucket.

The pursuit classes at the Bucket enjoyed mild conditions today for their kick-off race in St. Barths, with mostly 15-16 knots of breezes and a manageable sea state prevailing on a 19.5 - 23.9 nm course that circled the island in a counter-clockwise direction....

Each year the Bucket Regatta designates a portion of the entry fee for donation to a meaningful non-profit program in St Barths.
The Youth Sailing Program at the St Barths Yacht Club will receive the 2017 donation.
The St Barths Yacht Club is an active sailing school and their priority is the youth of St Barths. Here the children learn to respect each other and their environment, the sea. They also learn how to be responsible and cooperative in the pursuit of their goals.
SBYC offers many programs starting at very early ages. On an island learning to sail is as important as learning to swim. The St Barths Yacht Club tries its best to motivate and support its young people. Over 400 children participate every year.
The SBYC is not a conventional yacht club. Resources and budgets are far more limited than what one would expect to find in a typical club. The Bucket donation makes a significant and meaningful difference.
