On this page you will find links to all the racing and other documents you need to enter, plan and enjoy your Cowes Classics Week regatta. The list often changes so it is worth coming back from time to time to review the listing, especially with regards to amendments etc.
Note on Racing Results
To reduce the environmental impact of printing thousands of paper result sheets during the week, and also in support of our Covid mitigations, paper racing results will no longer be provided. Instead the results will be displayed at RLYC in the lobby window. Results are also posted to the website here, and we aim to have the provisionals online before boats return to the dock.

Notices to Mariners
As well as recreational craft, there are a large number of commercial movements, with high-speed ferries, vehicle ferries, and commercial shipping up to 100m in length moving in and out of the harbour and river. In this busy marine environment it is essential for everyone's safety and enjoyment that all water users understand how to navigate safely in a crowded river and harbour, and know the local regulations. To review the comprehensive list of all active Local Notices to Mariners visit the ABP Southampton Website.
