The Gibsons Regatta 2022
The Gibsons Regatta was a regular event on the Sea Cavalcade weekend. After a hiatus of a number of years the club revived it, having its first regatta on Saturday July 27th. 2019. The historic Howe Sound cup (which in past days was awarded to the overall winner of three local regattas: Bowen Island, Gibsons, and Squamish) was taken out of retirement and will henceforth be awarded to the Gibsons Regatta winner.
The 2022 Regatta will go ahead on the weekend of July 23/24 with three races over the two days - a long around the Islands race on Saturday and two short in-harbour races on Sunday.
The regatta is open to anyone; free to SCYC and GYC members and $25 for others. First timers and those who rarely race are very welcome.
This year we welcome members of the Martin 242 Fleet who will be competing for their BC Championship at the same time.
