2013 Inter-club Yacht Race series Race 1


inter club race

RCN La Linea hosted the first race of the 2013 Inter club yacht racing series. This is the third year of the ever popular series, with a total entry of 40 yachts. A fresh westerly breeze in the Bay of Gibraltar, promised for a lively days racing. Shortly after mid day the 2 lap race of the windward/leeward course was started, with a constant 20 knots of breeze and gusts registering 30 knots. The crew onboard Seawolf enjoyed fast beats and faster spinnaker legs, often hitting 10 knots plus of B&G boat speed. On the final leg, 2 yachts, choosing to sail straight as opposed to sailing the faster VMG angles, both suffered broken spinnaker poles after chinese gybes in the stronger shifting gusts. Final results of RI2 where:

  1. Seawolf Pronavia 38
  2. Luna VI Beneteau 36.7
  3. Doncella Beach X35
The next race is in Ceuta on the 16th February, please contact us if you would like to join the winning crew on Seawolf
