Peter Taylor, MBEThe Royal London Yacht Club, organiser of Cowes Classics Week, today announced that Peter Taylor MBE will take over as Chair of the regatta for 2022. 

Peter brings a wealth of talent to the role; he is an International and Olympic Race Officer and has successfully chaired Cowes Week for the last five years.

With record entries of over 200 in 2021, Cowes Classics Week is the largest classic yacht regatta of its type, yet it retains the character of a club-based event with lively social events centred on the RLYC and other yacht clubs in Cowes.

High quality Corinthian racing is organised on five separate race courses from Monday 27th June to Friday 1st July.

Cowes Classics Day, a new feature of Cowes Classics Week launched in 2021 and featuring many classic cars, yachts and motor boats on display, will be held on Sunday 26th June, the day after the world-renowned Round the Island Race.

Peter, who has been involved with the regatta since its start, said “I’m very excited to have the opportunity to lead Cowes Classics Week as we enter our 14th year. We have already had a wash up meeting with competitors at the 2021 event and are taking their feedback into account and with the uncertainties of last year behind us, we’re going all out for a bumper year in 2022”.

Entries will open by 1st March 2022 and more information can be found at www.cowesclassicsweek.org.
