With no sailing in the Gotland 2017 NatWest International Island Games, the sailing community in Gibraltar would like to take this opportunity to invite all the competing islands to come and participate here and also to offer some information on Gibraltar and a little detail on the Sailing event itself.

Sailing was first introduced by Gibraltar as one of the sports in the Island Games in 1995 when the Games were last hosted here. There is great enthusiasm in seeing it return and a strong desire to see full participation from all the competing islands.
