Blog Evert van Dishoeck: Unique Evenings at the St. Barths Bucket Regatta

The Clipper just left Miami, where she was hosting several business events. Next to adventurous sailing trips and luxury cruises, the Clipper also offers a perfect setting for a cocktail party, business dinner or company sail. We just attended the St. Barths Bucket, a regatta for the world's most magnificent sailing superyachts.


A unique location to invite your guests

As Clipper Stad Amsterdam offers deck space for over 150 guests she is the perfect location for a get together after a race day. The romantic evening lightning on the rigging and the cozy cocktail bar on deck make the perfect setting for an exclusive evening out. Our hospitality crew welcomes all guests with a glass of Champagne and serves delicious canapes during the evening. 


Clipper Stad Amsterdam is also very suitable for a seated dinner on deck and offers the opportunity to take your guests out sailing to watch the regatta at sea. You could even book the 14 luxury guest cabins for a splendid nautical hotel experience. 


About the Bucket

In 1995, the beautiful French island of St. Barths hosted its first Bucket Regatta and it has done so in March every year since then. In recent years, 40 or more superyachts have gathered to compete for the Bucket in glamorous St Barths. As the Bucket Regatta has evolved, the organizers have kept a tight focus on maintaining the original camaraderie and non-commercial spirit of the event. For over 35 years since 1986 the regatta was, and still is, an event conceived and hosted for the pleasure and joy of the sailing superyacht owner.


Royal Huisman supports the Bucket Royal Huisman, builder of many famous sailing yachts, was an early supporter of the original Nantucket Bucket regatta in 1986 and has continued to support the Bucket Regattas in Newport and St. Barth’s ever since. Clipper Stad Amsterdam had the honor to offer Royal Huisman's invitees a unique evening.
