Gorey Regatta entry open
ENTRIES are now being accepted for one of the oldest sailing events in the world – the 2018 Logicalis Gorey Regatta.
Established in 1857, the two-day event – this year taking place on 7 and 8 July – provides sailors of all types with the opportunity to compete in the Royal Bay of Grouville, underneath the spectacular backdrop of Mont Orgueil Castle.
There will be races for cruising yachts, multihulls, dayboats, dinghies and windsurfers, attracting sailors of all ages from St Catherine’s Sailing Club and St Helier Yacht Club as well as the home port of Gorey. With social events that include a beach barbecue and a prize-giving buffet, the event provides the Island’s sailing community with an opportunity to combine shore-based fun with hard-fought competition on the water – a combination that ensures the event’s continued popularity after 161 years.
Further information and entry details can be found on the association’s website www.goreyregatta.org.
