ST. BARTHS--The 35.51 metre sailing yacht “Gelliceaux” was declared the overall winner of this year’s St. Barth’s Bucket Regatta.

Some 35 entries were competing in the following racing classes: Les Gazelles, Les Elegantes, Les Petites Dames, L’Esprit 1 and L’Esprit 2,  Les Mademoiselles, and Performance Ouverts. First place in the class Les Gazelles was awarded to the 66.7-m sailing yacht “Hetairos.” The yacht managed to place first also in another class, Performance Ouverts. The 39.4-m classic J-Class sailing yacht “Velsheda” snatched the title of first place in the class Les Elegantes after she beat all other vessels in the first, second, and third races.  In the class Les Petites Dames, the 27.71 m sailing yacht “Freya” came in first place three times in a row also.  In the class L’Esprit 1, other contenders were no match for the 35.51-m sailing yacht “Gelliceaux,” which was delivered by her South-Africa based shipyard in 2023, and features both a carbon fibre hull and carbon fibre superstructure.  First place in the Les Mademoiselles was “Nakupenda”, a 33.24 m sailing yacht, after she dominated all three of the races over the course of the event. The 56.01-metre Perini Navi sailing yacht “Melek”, won first place in the class L’Esprit 2. Former St. Maarten resident Paul Dielemans was again steering a Royal Huisman yacht during the Bucket Regatta, the beautiful “Hyperion,” coming second in their class. Another (and a brand new build ) Royal Huisman superyacht “Nilaya” finished in third place in the Performance Ouverts.
