Gower Challenge 18th & 19th August

The Gower Challenge is a weekend dedicated to long distance racing, starting with a long distance race to Oxwich and back on day 1, and then concluding with two long distance races ‘around the cans’.

The long distance race is around 10nm each way, taking in stunning views of the Gower coastline as we go.

It’s a head to head between the cat and dinghy fleets!

The race is open to catamarans with an SCHRS of 1.55 or lower and two or more person dinghies with a PN of 999 or lower.

Entry fee is £20 for the weekend, free to Mumbles Yacht Club members.

Minimum age for the event is 15.
