The British Classic Yacht Club (BCYC) has announced that its annual regatta, British Classic Week (formerly Panerai British Classic Week), has been suspended.

Please see below statement from BCYC Commodore Jonathan Dyke:

"It is with heavy hearts that the BCYC committee has decided to suspend this year's British Classic Week. Due to the logistics of the regatta and for yacht owners' planning purposes, the time had come to make a decision. With so much uncertainty surrounding the coming months, it is prudent to postpone the regatta.

"If and when conditions permit, we will consider staging a smaller, less formal event and we will consult with our members to ensure as much opportunity as possible for participation. In the meantime, we look forward to welcoming owners and crew to the next British Classic Week, which is scheduled to be held in Cowes in July 2021."
