2023 King of Spain Series
Welcome to the 2023 King of Spain Series Information page.

The King of Spain race series is only open to CYC skippers and their vessels.

Please do not register if you are not a CYC member.

Crew seletion is not restricted to club members.


The series will consist of two pursuit races (one on each date) designed to last about two hours for the average boat. 

The King of Spain Trophy is an impressive large silver cup, donated in memory of former CYC Regatta Committee Chairman, Dudley Wolfe.  Mr. Wolfe had been presented the trophy by Alphonse, King of Spain, for his 2nd place finish in the 1928 Transatlantic Race to Santander, Spain.  Dudley Wolfe’s sister, Mrs. Hind of the Clifford (Smith) Wolfe family, donated the cup to Camden Yacht Club and designated that it be used as a perpetual award and, as such, a two-race series is held every summer for CYC member PHRF boats. The yacht club started racing for this trophy in 2001. It is open to all members’ boats and is raced under PHRF rules, sportsmanship, and good will.

Dudley Wolfe was a member of the tragic 1939 American expedition, which attempted to make the first ascent of the world’s second-highest peak, K2, in the Himalayas.  Mr. Wolfe died in that attempt on K2 in what was a controversial situation, as he was not an experienced climber, and his body was recovered only recently.  In 2002, Dudley Wolfe’s remains were found by Jennifer Jordan and Jeff Rhoads who were on K2 producing a documentary The Women of K2. Jennifer Jordan is a friend of CYC member and former fleet captain, Tom Kiley.
