Algeciras Regatta 2009/ Sailing Gibraltar

Seawolf and her new novice crew enjoyed another great weekends sailing in the Bay of Gibraltar, taking part in the annual Algeciras Regatta. Saturdays race took the fleet of 21 yachts west into the straits of Gibraltar towards Tarifa then back to the finish off Algeciras Marina. Making blistering upwind speed followed by an adrenalin filled kite leg back, Seawolf took victory by over 14 minutes from probably the most respected Beneteau 40.7 in the area “Noticia 2”.
Sundays windward/leeward course also blessed us with a fresh breeze, taking victory again by 4 minutes corrected, giving us the pleasure of taking 1st place in class and overall winners of the regatta. Congratulations to all on board.
