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.
Cowes Classics Week began in 2007 as a modest event for classic dayboats, with one-offs and one design classes from the south coast and all over the country supporting the regatta in ever greater numbers. In 2016 the International Tempest World Championships will be held within Cowes Classics Week.
Classic Yachts designed pre 1975 and constructed in wood or steel are eligible, plus GRP boats designed over 50 years ago. Spirit of Tradition yachts, provided they are to a classic design are also eligible. For 2015, the Old Gaffers will race in their own class alongside the Classic yachts.
