Panerai British Classic Week - Excitement builds as 11th edition nears


'Cowes, Isle of Wight:
Panerai British Classic Week 2012'    Guido Cantini

There are just three days left until the start of the 2013 Panerai British Classic Week (PBCW). Ecitement is building in the lead up to th 11th edition, to take place from the 6th July – 13th July in Cowes, Isle of Wight. Since 2010, it is the only UK regatta forming part of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge series, the leading international circuit for classic and vintage yachts.

The entry list for this year’s regatta includes some familiar 'faces' such as Cetewayo, a 35'Waterline Sloop built in 1955 which has competed successfully at the PBCW in the past three years. Another familiar classic returning will be Gluckhauf, the 1929 international 30 square metre class sloop built by Abeking and Rasmussen. Although she is one of the smallest built square metres, competitors should be warned- she has earned the nickname 'Flying Toothpick' in local regattas!

The list also features a few newcomers including Galatea, a beautiful 20m Custom built in Plym´s Yard, Stockholm, in 1899. Galatea has a long and successful history of racing as she is unusually slender and is only 12 feet at the beam, which makes her extremely fast. However, she fell into a state of despair and it wasn’t until 2002 that her current owner started restoring her to her former glory so she could race again. The organisers and competing crews are looking forward to welcoming Galatea at the Panerai British Classic Week for the first time.

The PBCW is not only famous for its excellent and challenging sailing conditions, but also for the varied social programme that the British Classic Yacht Club and Officine Panerai are offering to competing crews. Besides the daily price giving and drinks reception at the Panerai Lounge, the programme includes an Open Yachts Pontoon Party on the 9th July; a Themed Crew Party – 'Pirates of Penzance'- on the 10th July; a prize giving Gala Dinner on the 12th July and the famous Parade of Sail past the Royal Yacht Squadron on the last day, 13th July.


Entries are still open, for further information and details about the Panerai British Classic Week please visit the event website.
