Early Bird Discount for Cowes Classics Week Ends Soon

The Early Bird Discount for Cowes Classics Week ends at midnight on 6 May.

The world’s biggest classic yacht regatta of its kind is open to classic yachts built in wood or steel before 1975, or GRP yachts designed at least 50 years ago.  All classic S&S-designed yachts including Swans and S&S 34s, regardless of design date, are invited.  Spirit of Tradition yachts designed to classic lines are also welcomed.  There will be a non-spinnaker division for classic yachts above 30’ in length.

Entries are already in from fleets of classic dayboats, GRP classics such as Contessa 32s and Twisters, and some beautiful wooden yachts from a bygone era.  Fleets of Darings, XODs, Solent Sunbeams, Swallows, Seaview Mermaids and others will compete on windward/leeward courses while individual yachts will compete on classic round-the-cans courses around the Solent.

With the Round The Island Race and Cowes Classics Day to start the week and a full program of social events at the Cowes yacht clubs, there is a whole week of racing, entertainment and fun to be enjoyed.

Racing is run from 27 June – 1 July.

To enter, go to www.cowesclassicsweek.org/enter-online or contact the organisers, the Royal London Yacht Club at secretary@ccw-team.org.
