2020 will be the 6th year of the "King of the Gulf".  This fantastic regatta conducted by the Multihull Yacht Association of South Australia continues to go from strength to strength. The regatta is sailed in the best flat racing waters South Australia offers. Great racing coupled with a fantastic inclusive social program makes this a bucket list regatta and one of the best regattas you will ever sail in. The 2020 regatta will also host the 2020 National Multihull Championships featuring the fastest sailing yachts in Australia. (See skipper comments on the regatta HERE)
