The Gibsons Regatta 2024, July 20-21

The 2024 Regatta will occur over the weekend of July 20/21 with three races over the two days - a long around the Islands race on Saturday and two short in-harbor races on Sunday.

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 regatta is open to anyone; entry fee $25 per boat. First timers and those who rarely race are very welcome.
