Cowes Week Ltd (CWL) is delighted to announce that entries for Cowes Week 2022 will open at noon today, with Super Early Bird discounts available until 18 February.

Having run a successful regatta last year, despite Covid restrictions, the team are excited about plans for this year. On the water, the racing will follow a similar format with more starts off the Royal Yacht Squadron line and a roving Committee Vessel, able to be located to make best use of the conditions on the day. The race teams have been working throughout the winter to address issues around shortening courses and new plans are in place to make that a smoother process across all 42 fleets within the Regatta.

A new one design class for Sonata's has been introduced to reflect its strong activity in Cowes over the past few years. We have also added a class for the FarEast 28 who are intending to hold their European Championships at Cowes Week.

On shore, the event will continue its legendary and wide ranging social programme kicking off with the Cowes Week Opening Party on Saturday 30 July, for which DJ Mark Covell has already been re- booked. Those of you who were there last year will know that DJ Covell made quite a night of it!

Based on competitor feedback, an updated pricing structure has been introduced for Black Group boats for 2022 which has been radically altered to make it fairer across the board for different sized boats. The pricing bands are now broken down into 1 m increments and start at 7m rather than 9m which will lead to more consistency in what different boats are paying, irrespective of their overall length.

The team at Cowes Week look forward to welcoming competitors and visitors to the Regatta and to the sunny Isle of Wight for race day 1 on Saturday July 30th. The overall prize-giving will be on Friday August 5th.
