This year the “King of the Gulf” regatta will also host the 2020 State and National Multihull Championships with yachts expected from Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.

The regatta is raced in the fantastic, flat sailing waters of Port Vincent with an across the gulf passage race from Adelaide to Port Vincent on the Friday (14th) and a return race from Port Vincent to Adelaide on the Tuesday (18th).

Venom is a new 43-foot Grainger carbon trimaran that will compete in the event.

The regatta has the reputation of being inclusive and friendly with a strong and affordable social program.

Last year, in an exciting initiative a large number of yachts cruised over to Port Lincoln and the Sir Joseph Banks Group after the regatta.

This year this optional cruise in company will allow yachts to view the Adelaide-Lincoln race from the sea and participate in the Lincoln Week Regatta.

Of special interest will be the participation of the new 43-foot Grainger carbon trimaran speedster Venom which has just been completed in Queensland and will be home to compete in both the “King of the Gulf” regatta and then the Teakle Classic Adelaide to Port Lincoln Yacht race the following weekend.

More information is available on the MYASA web site.

Feel free to join us for a great week of sailing.
