Cowes Classics Week 2024 entries now open © Cowes Classics Week

The Notice of Race has been published and entries are now open on the website. Early Entry fees are discounted to encourage the majority of entries well before the closing date.

Cowes Classics Week is organised by a team of volunteers and confirmation of our assumptions and forecasts is vital to ensure the resources are available to present first class racing and social events. We believe that we are the only regatta to offer a family entertainment day ahead of racing in the form of Cowes Classics Day on Sunday 7th July followed by varied social events and dining opportunities every day.

New for 2024 is the association with the Classic Channel Regatta, a uniquely enjoyable biannual event with a varied blend of racing and a lively and informal social programme, bringing together classic boats and their crews from Britain, France and further afield. There is to be a feeder race from Cowes to Dartmouth as a link between our two regattas with the race starting at Cowes on Sunday July 14th, arriving at Dartmouth on the 15th in good time for registration in Dartmouth on the 17th. The organisers are hoping to get the passage race NOR published shortly and you can already pre-register online.

Our own webmaster, Steve Vyse, has been working through the dark months of winter revising our web site which is now faster, more efficient and smart phone friendly. New for 2024 are user accounts so you can keep track of your regatta entry and tickets. Many of you reported in our wash up survey last Autumn that you would welcome improvements and we hope that you agree that Steve has delivered.

An overview of the Social Events will be available shortly on the website to help you plan your week in Cowes. Full details and online social event booking will be available once we have been able to finalise pricing and details.

The Royal London Yacht Club and regatta organising committee look forward to welcoming both returning entries and new comers to Cowes from 7th July for the 16th edition of Cowes Classics Week!

Don't delay! Enter today!
