Early indications point to a very special edition! Plans are well under way and all the news is good.
2024 highlights include:
Unparalleled ORCsy class racing in the popular pursuit racing format will provide yacht owners with exciting, close competition against yachts with similar sailing characteristics.
The Corinthian Spirit Class racing, which featured 12 entries last year, will return to its roots and once again be a non-spinnaker competition.
Based on strong early interest, the 90-foot class is expected to make a return to St Barths. The Bucket Stewards will accept the first six entries (criteria to be posted with the NOR).
A 100-foot Racing Class will be offered for the first time. This will be for performance-oriented sloops over 100’ LOA and that do not fit the SYRA’s ‘cruising superyacht’ criteria. Please contact the organizer for further details.
Dock space in Gustavia will be on a first come basis. In response to feedback from our entrants, there will not be a ‘Yacht Hop’ in 2024. However, there will be a fun-themed dockside party at the Capitainerie on Saturday evening.
The official Bucket social schedule will again be unrivaled, providing yacht owners and their guests with a unique, fun filled experience on the water and shoreside as well.
Building on 2023 and in the spirit of being inclusive, social (non-racing) entrants will again be welcome to the Bucket. Sailing or motor yachts wishing to participate in the Bucket as non-racing social entries are encouraged to request an invitation to the 2024 edition. A limited number of non-racing entry applications will be accepted. Details are posted (pdf).
SAVE THE DATE and join us in 2024 to enjoy the special Spirit of the St Barths Bucket!
