The Gibsons Regatta 2021
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 2021 Regatta will go ahead on the weekend of July 24/25 in an exciting new format with three races over the two days - see the poster image opposite.
The regatta is open anyone; free to SCYC and GYC members and $25 for others. We have a new first timer trophy this year to encourage sailors who do not currently race with us to come out for the event.
All the information you need should be found on the links on the other side of this page - if not let us know by email.
The 2019 winner was Jane's Addiction with an elapsed time of 01hr 35min 25sec! The rest of the 2019 race results can be seen here.
