16th June (Rain Date 23rd June) 2018
Annual Heineken Round the Island Seagull race. Bermuda


As far as we know, Bermudas first organized Seagull race was in 1969, when two locals, “Ghost” and “Skeets” got into a heated argument over who had the fastest dinghy. It was decided that a fair race around the island should be run, with both boats powered by British Seagull engines. History does not reveal who won, but the idea of racing in small boats powered by Seagull outboards appealed to many and Seagull racing caught on, with the main event being the annual ‘Round the Island Seagull Race ever since.

Pre-Race Sign-up is June 6th, 6-7.30pm upstairs at Robin Hood.
Start at 8:00. The venue is Sandys Boat Club.
Route anti-clockwise around Bermuda (42 miles)
