The Cowes Clubs and Classes Association (CCCA) race documents for the 'Cowes Cruiser and Dayboat Regattas', comprising the 'Cowes Solent Series' and 'Cowes Keelboat Championship' can be viewed via the links shown below.

The small keelboat classes, are, for many people, the heart of Solent racing and include the Darings, Dragons, Etchells, Flying 15s, Sonars, Six Metres, RS Elites, X One Designs, and Squibs.

The Cowes Solent Series consists of round-the-cans races from May to October with shoreline starts using the Cowes clubs’ start lines. The Cowes Keelboat Championship runs over six weekends from May to September and uses committee boat starts.

The CCCA encourages competitors to use the online entry form, link also shown below.
