Hundreds of superyacht owners and their crews chose to spend Easter at the St. Barths Bucket Regatta, where pursuit-style racing of gorgeous superyachts has become an annual affair since 1995. Over the years, many of the world’s most notable and accomplished sailors have participated in the racing. Nonetheless, as the Bucket Regatta has evolved, the organizers have focused on maintaining the original camaraderie and non-commercial spirit of the event. It was, and still is, an event conceived and hosted purely for the pleasure and enjoyment of sailing superyacht owners, as it is in the philosophy of most of the Southern Wind racing owners.
The RORC Caribbean 600 is the only offshore race of the Caribbean series. Established in 2008, this race has already become a favorite, with many well-known sailing yachts competing.
