The Oldest yacht race in the Spanish calendar, this offshore classic starts at Club El Candado, Malaga heading South East to the remote Spanish Island of Alboran 16 miles North of the Moroccan coast, this military outpost is a rare sight to sea up close by day or by night! Once round the route is direct back to Malaga, with the famous light airs within the bay of Malaga making the finish a tricky obstacle after 24 hours offshore racing. This race is ideal to test yourself on a relatively short but very demanding offshore race. A realistic race time for “Seawolf” is approximately 20 to 24 hours for this offshore yacht race. We will be defending our title as “Vencedor Absoluto” after winning the regatta overall in 2015.
