Cowes Classics Week 20-24 July 2015 
  Cowes Classics Week is for all Metre boats, Classic Racing Dayboats and One Designs, Classic Cruisers and Old Gaffers.

Metre Boats

8mR TJP6170 21x10

There has been a real resurgence of interest in The Metre Boats with many restorations and new builds, and sailing mega-stars choosing metre boats for their personal sailing. Cowes Classics Week is delighted to be organising competitive fleet racing for 12mR, classic and modern 6mR, Daring, and original 5.5mR.

X-Boat TJP6832

Cowes Classics Week began in 2007 as a modest event for classic dayboats, however with support from racing sailors exceeding all expectations, we continue to extend a warm welcome to expanding fleets from the huge number of classic one design classes around the country, together with one-offs.

Classic Yachts & Old Gaffers

Helmi Cruiser TJP6374

We first invited wooden IOR and other classic yachts, including some GRP designs, to race with us in 2013 as an open class, subject to a "fit" with the eligibility criteria, to wooden and steel boats built before 1970, and to GRP boats designed over 50 years ago. For 2015 this class will be joined by the old gaffers.
