The Gibsons Regatta completed!
The Gibsons regatta was a regular event on the Sea Cavalcade weekend. After a hiatus of a number of years the club revived the old past time by having its first regatta on Saturday July 27th.
The course covered rounding the group of Paisley's island and Keats island totaling approximately 12nm. We had a good solid twelve boats with very blustery conditions that never let up. And the first boat to cross the line and claim the number one prize is Jane's Addiction at an elapsed time of 01hr 35min 25sec! The name will be engraved in the same cup used in the old days known as the Howe Sound cup where it will be kept in a display at the public market. The rest of the race results can be seen here.
A big thanks to the all that contributed to launching the club's first regatta with special thanks to our fleet captain, David Pritchard, that made it happen. It was a great success and paved the way in making the Gibsons Regatta an annual event. An event that will be held each year on the last weekend of July.
