The 35.4-metre Southern Wind sailing yacht Gelliceaux has been announced as the overall winner of the St Barths Bucket 2024. 

Gelliceaux claimed victory in the L’Esprit 1 Class and was crowned the overall winner in her maiden event, though competition was fierce between the 35-strong fleet.

"We never even dreamt of winning the Bucket, as we are awed by the legendary programs who had won previously," said her owners. "Gelliceaux performed well above expectations and we are extremely proud of the entire team."

The design team behind Gelliceaux also includes Nauta Design and Farr Yacht Design.

The Les Gazelles Class went to 66.7-metre Baltic sailing yacht Hetairos, with Royal Huisman's 56-metre Aquarius cinching herself a win on the first race but ultimately settling for second place. 

Meanwhile, the 38.5-metre Velsheda won by a landslide in the Les Elegantes Class, with a result of three points to second place's six points, while the 27.7-metre Nautor Swan Freya boasted an equally unanimous win for the Les Petites Dames Class.

First place in the Les Mademoiselles Class went to 33.2-metre Nakupenda, the overall winner at last year's regatta.
