David Gower, Chairman of Cowes Classics Week announces the 2019 event
Cowes Classics Week is the regatta “run by sailors for sailors” and reputed to be the largest regatta of its type in the World.
Now in its 12th year, I am delighted that Red Funnel have agreed a 3 year plan as a Signature Sponsor of the event. In addition to financial support, Red Funnel will offer assistance with ferry travel to competitors.
I am also most grateful to all our other supporting sponsors Classic Boat Magazine, Robert Oatley, Cowes Harbour Commission, Winkworth, Zhik UK, Mary Rose Gin, Wight Crystal, Kendalls Fine Art, Clare Lallow's and Roberts Charts, and almost 100 volunteers that make it possible to present such an ambitious regatta, with 5 race circuits and probably the best classic racing available anywhere in the world.
