CCW 17RT2038The social events at Cowes Classics Week are an integral part of the week, much enjoyed by competitors, who are able to spend quality time in the company of like-minded sailors and classic boat enthusiasts. The full programe can be found further down this page.

Free Tea & Cake

Winkworth Estate Agents will again be providing tea and delicious homemade cake for all competitors after racing on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. These refreshments are served at the Royal London, when the bar is also open (competitors are issued with wrist bands which are effectively your entry ticket to these events).

Free Prize Giving Receptions

Regatta entries include a number of tickets to the following receptions (competitors are issued with wrist bands which are effectively your entry ticket to these events). We are deeply indebted to our sponsors who make it possible for us to lay on these free receptions.

Suppers & Dinners

As usual, we shall visit a number of yacht clubs during the week, including a Hog Roast and dancing at Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club, club supper at Royal London Yacht Club, drinks reception at the Classic Boat Museum, the 'triple decker' buffet, BBQ or carvery at the Island Sailing Club and of course the main regatta dinner at the Royal London Yacht Club. The Classic Boat Museum event is a new venue for Cowes Classics Week and promises to be an inclusive evening where all could attend. The Thursday Pie supper at RVYC in Fishbourne includes transport (out by road, back by water).

Early booking discount

A discount of 10% is available on all social events booked before midnight on Friday 20 July 2018, so don’t leave it to the last minute. And please note that we shall not directly make refunds on social tickets purchased but no longer required, but will set up an exchange system for competitors during the regatta.
