The Victory Class was founded in 1934 to race day-boats out of Portsmouth Harbour and participate in the annual Cowes Week regatta. In their home waters the distinctive 21ft black clinker built boats provide competitive racing 3 times a week and a turnout of twenty or more boats is not unusual. The Victory Class believes it has some of the most competitive racing on the Solent.
