Bucket Regatta book coverFrom its casual beginning in Nantucket in 1987 (with seven b–oats) to its most recent iteration in Newport and St. Barths (where over 40 yachts are preparing to race), Bucket Regattas have captured sailors' imagination in a way that no other event can begin to approach.

The Bucket has attracted a growing coterie of devoted participants, loyal sponsors and supporters from Nantucket to St. Barths to Newport. The Bucket Book celebrates 25 years of unique megayacht racing.

Alessandro Vitelli, veteran Bucket participant, and one time Race Committee Officer, offers us a view of how Bucket Racing is in a class by itself. The book includes historical perspective by Peter Goldstein, one of the original instigators
