Those wishing to benefit from a discount when they enter for Cowes Classics Week 2023 may still do so, but time is running out. The discount ends at midnight on Wednesday 31st May.

Cowes Classics Week this year will run from Saturday 8th July to Friday 14th July, with racing from the 10th to the 14th. It's the world's biggest classic yacht regatta of its kind and is open to classic yachts built in wood or steel before 1975, or GRP yachts designed at least 50 years ago.

All classic S&S-designed yachts including Swans and S&S 34s, regardless of design date, are invited. Spirit of Tradition yachts designed to classic lines are also welcomed. There will be a non-spinnaker division for classic yachts above 30' in length.

An exciting programme of social events has just been finalised and participants can book them now. Some events are fully booked every year, so it's always a good idea to book early.

The social programme this year starts with a barbeque at the host club on Saturday 8th July and runs right through to the Survivors' Curry Supper on Friday 14th July. One of the great attractions of Cowes Classics Week is that despite its size, it retains the character of a club-hosted regatta.

Indeed, all of the yacht clubs in Cowes open their doors at some time during the week to host an event. This year participants will also be able to enjoy the hospitality of the Royal Victoria Yacht Club in Wootton Creek, the club which hosted the 1908 Olympic sailing events and inspired the creation of Cowes Classics Week following a centenary regatta in 2008.

If you're planning to join in the fun, be sure to get to Cowes in time to enjoy Cowes Classics Day on Sunday 9th July, where visitors will see a host of classic cars and boats on the doorstep of the RLYC. More attractions are planned for Cowes Classics Day this year and will be announced shortly.

To enter, please go to www.cowesclassicsweek.org/enter-online or contact the organisers, the Royal London Yacht Club at .
