No other event in the world offers such a wide-ranging gathering of racing classics, from keelboats to dayboats and cruisers.
Our loyal sponsors make this world class event possible. We are deeply grateful to all our supporters.
Racing at Cowes Classics Week is rich in the camaraderie and corinthian values that underpin our great sport.
From jazz to high teas to suppers, you'll enjoy roaring good fun in like-minded company with daily drinks receptions free to racers.
The high quality of racing has made Cowes Classics Week the largest Classic Yacht Regatta in the world
Organised by the Royal London Yacht Club with the help of the leading local clubs, Cowes Classics Week is run by sailors for sailors.
Having read the Notice of Race which can be downloaded from the online Official Notice Board, begin your regatta by entering your boat, selecting your Cowes Classics Week Yacht Class from one of the options shown below and clicking 'Register' to place your entry into our online shopping cart with the appropriate fee.
We are delighted to announce that Red Funnel are offering up to 50% discounts on their car ferry route from Southampton to East Cowes. A promotional code will be emailed to you upon request to the RLYC Office following entry.
