The annual Gibraltar Regatta will be held on the 25th and 26th of July 2020. This now famous annual regatta attracts yacht from all along the Andalucían coast. The main attraction being the tactically challenging around the rock race which invariably holds periods of very strong and very light winds, plus two roundings of Europe Point where complex tides and currents have to be contended with. The reward on top of the corrected time placings is the prestigious around the rock trophy which Seawolf and her crew were proud to win for the first time in 2014. Following the race the RGYC host the Round the Rock party in the new club house on the waterside on Coaling Island. Sunday offers 2 more races if weather and time permits, followed by the prize giving sponsored be Becks beer supplied by Anglo Hispano.
