The Sunshine Coast Yacht Club, formed by a group of sailors to promote regular yacht racing in Gibsons, has announced plans for a Gibsons Regatta on Saturday, July 27.

The “Gibsons ’Round the Islands Race” will take sailors on a 15-mile circular course around the islands between Gibsons and Bowen Island – Keats, Popham, Pasley, and Worlcombe.

“The very beautiful course should appeal to cruisers and racers alike,” the SCYC said in a release announcing the event.

Entry will be free for SCYC members and $25 per boat for non-members, and the SCYC is advising those who need moorage to register early. There are more details posted at:
