Cowes Classics Week

Cowes Classics Week, organised by the Royal London Yacht Club, will take place from Saturday, 27th July to Friday, 2nd August 2019. Racing is from Monday, 29th July to Friday, 2nd August. 

Cowes Classics Week is all about racing traditional yachts on the water and enjoying fabulous social events ashore. Metre boats, Classic Racing Dayboats, Classic Yachts, Old Gaffers and Spirit of Tradition Yachts are all welcome to sail varied courses set in the Solent with free high teas, great value parties and suppers at different club venues.

Cowes Harbour Commission 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.
