Cowes Classics Week

Cowes Classics Week is back once again in July 2017 from Monday, 17th to Friday, 21st, with a new sponsor, Charles Stanley Direct, which will be sponsoring the event for the first time. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Charles Stanley Direct Cowes Classics Week is expecting up to 180 yachts to attend the event for some spectacular Solent racing.

Classics including Darings, Solent Sunbeams, Swallows and Bembridge One Designs will be attending. In addition, the XOD class, which regularly musters over 50 entries, is expected to be the largest fleet once again and the Vintage Dragon class, which made its first appearance in 2016, looks to be increasing in numbers. The Flying Fifteen class will be celebrating its 70th year with an anniversary race on Monday, 17th July.

Handicap fleets will include Old Gaffers, SCODs, Twisters, Vintage Swans and a historic assortment of other yachts whose design pedigrees date back to 1975 or before. Several 8 metres are also indicating that they will take part. In addition, the Seaview Mermaids and National Squibs will be appearing for one day each during the event. Spirit of Tradition yachts, more recently introduced but providing they are to a classic design, such as the Rustler and Tofinou, also compete in their own class.

Cowes Harbour Commission (CHC) is a supporting sponsor and provides logistical support to the event from the positioning of event branding to the provision of swinging moorings for dayboat classes and marina facilities for cruisers and metre boats.
