Corinthian racing at its best
Cowes Classics Week is rich in the camaraderie and corinthian values that underpin our great sport.
Come and join us for the 8th year of this event
It is the high standard of racing that has made CCW the fastest growing event in the country
The greatest classics event?
No other event in the world offers such a wide ranging gathering of racing classics, from keelboats to day boats and cruisers.
Run by the clubs for the sailors
Organised by the Royal London Yacht Club with the help of the other leading clubs of Cowes, CCW is by sailors for sailors
Great socials at different yacht clubs!
From jazz to high teas to suppers, you’ll enjoy roaring good fun in like-minded company with all receptions free to racers.
With the 2014 regatta completed we will soon be starting to work on Cowes Classics Week 2015. Developments will be reported on this website in the run up to the regatta so it is worthwhile registering if you are thinking of coming (and you should!) It is a simple process and if you need to talk something through then please contact us ››
There has been a real resurgence of interest in The Metre Boats with many restorations and new builds, and sailing mega-stars choosing metre boats for their personal sailing. Cowes Classics Week is delighted to be organising competitive fleet racing for 12mR, 8mR, classic and modern 6mR, Daring, and original 5.5mR.
Cowes Classics Week began in 2007 as a modest event for classic dayboats, however with support from racing sailors exceeding all expectations, we continue to extend a warm welcome to expanding fleets from the huge number of classic one design classes around the country, together with one-offs.
We first invited wooden IOR and other classic yachts, including some GRP designs, to race with us in 2013 as an open class, subject to a "fit" with the eligibility criteria, to wooden and steel boats built before 1970, and to GRP boats designed over 50 years ago. For 2015 this class will be joined by the old gaffers.
