Please note that the entry fee to Cowes Classics Week does not include fees for any moorings which you need to arrange for yourself.

This page provides guidance on arranging your mooring and you should additionally read the Cowes Harbour Commission Special Event Terms and Conditions.

Swinging Moorings

As usual, the Cowes Harbourmaster will lay additional moorings in the entrance to the Medina both inside and outside the breakwater. This is an annual feature to provide sufficient moorings for the 800 boats that arrive for Cowes Week and will be used by those keelboats that would normally use these facilities.

The cost for the 5 nights of Cowes Classics Week will be £11.22 per metre for 5 nights of CCW.

The following classes should book their moorings through their Class Association representative:

  • Bembridge One Design
  • National Swallow
  • Redwing
  • Solent Sunbeam
  • Victory
  • XOD

All other dayboats should complete this Swinging Mooring Booking Form and return it to the Regatta Secretary at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The deadline for booking a swinging mooring is Saturday 20 May 2017.

Although the following diagram shows the indicative mooring plan, the actual mooring plan will be drawn after the closing date for entries and made available here on the website for download during June 2017.
