Those wishing to benefit from a discount when they enter for Cowes Classics Week 2022 may still do so, but time is running out.
The discount ends at midnight on Friday 6th 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. Racing is run from 27th June to 1st July.
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’s a whole week of racing, entertainment and fun to be enjoyed.
