Having successfully run the delayed Cowes Spring Classics in September 2020, the organisers are looking forward to seeing everyone in 2021. Due to the current situation they have taken the decision to move the date from May to 20 – 22 August 2021.
Cowes Spring Classics, which started in 2018, is a regatta for classic wooden yachts designed before 1970, including: Cruisers & Cruiser Racers, Affordable Classic Cruisers around 25ft, Gaff Rigged Yachts & Pilot Cutters, Day Boats & Raters, Classic Metre Yachts plus Modern Spirit of Tradition Yachts. Non-racing Yachts and Motorboats are most welcome.
The racing will be organised by the Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club with two races on Saturday 21 August 2021 and two races on Sunday 22 August. Although we expect people to take the racing seriously, it will very much be a relaxed regatta conducted in a gentlemanly manner in keeping with the age of the yachts. We aim to make the social side and the appreciation of the history of the competing yachts as important as the racing.
All yachts will be berthed at Shepards Marina and the Sugar Store will be the focus for the shoreside activities, with a Crew BBQ on the Friday evening and an Evening Dinner on Saturday evening. The Prize Giving will take place after racing on Sunday.
