Cowes Classics Week's club-based social program embraces six local yacht clubs

by Cowes Classics Week 31 Mar 02:12 PDT 8-14 July 2023

The Royal London Yacht Club, organiser of Cowes Classics Week, is delighted to reveal that its popular club-based social program will this year include events at six local yacht clubs.

The spirit of Cowes Classics Week is Corinthian racing on the water followed by a full, fun and varied social calendar ashore. Thanks to the support of GJW Direct, the experts in marine insurance, the one-design fleets will enjoy tight racing on windward/leeward courses, while the handicap fleets will enjoy the tactical and navigational challenges of round-the-cans Solent racing.

Once ashore, social events start with the renowned post-racing Tea & Cakes at the RLYC, which Evelyn Partners, the UK's leading integrated wealth management and professional services group, are delighted to sponsor for the second year. The evening entertainment typically starts with daily prize-giving and drinks, hosted this year by a number of clubs including the Royal Ocean Racing Club and the Royal Yacht Squadron. Each evening at least one club will lay on an evening meal and this may range from a Hog Roast to the Regatta Dinner.

Clubs including the Island Sailing Club, Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club and the Royal Victoria Yacht Club will be hosting the evening dinners. The RVYC was the original host club for the yacht racing events in the 1908 Olympic games and this year competitors in Cowes Classics Week will be able to enjoy a motor boat cruise down the coast to the RVYC for supper. The full social calendar will be available for booking soon.

Cowes Classics Week 2023 will run from 8th to 14th July, incorporating Cowes Classics Day on the 9th and racing from the 10th to the 14th.
