Spring is Regatta season on St. Barth, starting on March 28-31, with the St. Barth Bucket Regatta - 3 days of regattas around St. Barth for a fleet of the largest, most prestigious sailing yachts. The Port of Gustavia hosts some of the most spectacular sailboats in the world. Every year since 1995, the St. Barth Bucket has taken place in the charming port of "the pearl of the Caribbean." A magnificent weekend of sailing promises to transform the crystal-clear waters of St. Barth into a battlefield for passionate sailors, while spectators on shore will enjoy the sight of these fabulous boats, their sails unfurled to the wind.
The Les Voiles de St. Barth regatta on April 8-13 is unique in its festive tropical charm, and its wide international appeal. Les Voiles de St. Barth is a top notch sporting event with an applaudable organization that offers many pleasures both to locals as well as the visitors who have already confirmed their delight.
The West Indies Regatta is a three day event held annually over the Mayday weekend (May 3-6) in St. Barth celebrating traditional West Indian sails. More of a wooden boat festival than a competitive regatta, the purpose of the event is to promote & encourage traditional boatbuilding in the Caribbean.
Other Regattas happening this spring are as follows:
Caribbean Super Yacht Regatta Virgin Gorda
International Rolex Regatta
BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival
Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta
Antigua Sailing Week
April 28-May 3
