St. Barth’s Bucket director Peter Craig has announced the positive news that the island’s regatta – one of the most famous in the Caribbean – will go ahead as planned in early 2018. Following Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, the island has been working solidly to bring infrastructure back online and restore amenities ahead of the winter luxury yachting season.
“Many restaurants, villas and hotels plan to be ‘open for business’ and ready to welcome visitors in November and for the holidays. The airport, roads, and port are open with services already restored to many,” the Bucket Management Team commented.
The majority of the diving and snorkeling sites have remained untouched, along with the surrounding islands of St. Vincent, Mustique and the Grenadines where conditions are perfect for water sports involving sails. Famous establishments such as Foxy’s Bar and Basil’s Bar on Mustique are expected to be open for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
Peter Craig has reported that 25 sailing yachts have so far registered their interest in participating in the St. Barth’s Bucket, which will take place on the 18th of March.
Currently registered participants include old favorites FARFALLA from Southern Wind, GENEVIEVE from Alloy Yachts and KOO from Vitters Shipyard, with the full list available to view on the St. Barth’s Bucket website and updated as more entries are received.
