February 28, 2014, St Barths, F.W.I. - WIMCO Villas announces the continuation of its partnership with The St. Barths Bucket Regatta, held March 27th-30th this year. As part of the agreement, The Bucket features WIMCO as the preferred villa rental and concierge service provider for all Bucket Regatta participants. WIMCO uniquely provides a one-stop shop for accommodations, flights, rental cars, provisions, and of course hard to get last minute restaurant reservations for both guest and crew parties.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with this signature event," says Stiles Bennet, President of WIMCO Villas. "The Bucket attracts some of the most beautiful superyachts in the world; the emphasis on 'winning the party' and having fun is in line with the relaxed nature of the island. The sheer beauty of these magnificent sailing vessels is a sight unlike many others. Besides just their size, the prowess required to sail these large yachts brings out some of the finest sailors from around the world to assist in the all out efforts to win by many owners. Winning the race is ultimately far more important than winning the party, no matter what any of these highly competitive owners want you to think!"
WIMCO offers villa vacations in some of sailing’s most desirable locations: St. Barths, St. Tropez, the Amalfi coast, as well as Nantucket. More than simply a villa rental agency, WIMCO’s concierge team arranges each aspect of a client’s vacation experience. Starting with choosing the ideal villa, WIMCO coordinates flights, restaurant reservations, and local activities, as well as private chefs and babysitters.

An invitational regatta, the St. Barths Bucket features both the latest in superyacht designs as well as true classics. The island of St. Barths provides breathtakingly gorgeous days on the water and the best onshore entertainment and cuisine to match. The majority of the fleet consists of beautiful, large cruising yachts; the exciting pursuit racing and the unique spirit of the regatta are a major draw for these sprawling yachts. It is the largest annual sailing superyacht regatta and is in its 20th year on St. Barths. The Bucket Regattas began in Nantucket in 1986. 2014’s dates are March 27th- 30th, with racing beginning on Friday, March 28th. For more information visit www.BucketRegattas.com
