The popularity of the regatta, and its winter break timing make St Barths Bucket week the second biggest week of the year after only their famed New Year’s Eve festivities!
During the day, sailing fans cluster at villas in Gustavia, Point Milou, Colombier and Flamands, ideal view points for spying the passing fleet. Any one who is interested in taking in a few minutes of the racing can pull over at any number of spots to see the boats competing as they circle the island.
The scene continues at night as many of the participating yachts are moored along the quai in Gustavia, and an events tent springs up alongside, playing host to music and food stalls. Each night, Bucket parties for owners and their crews are held at private villas and at local restaurants. Anyone visiting St Barths during this week can’t help but catch “Bucket fever”.
