Charles Stanley Direct Cowes Classics Week is all about racing traditional yachts on the water and enjoying fabulous social events ashore. Metre boats, Classic Racing Dayboats, Classic Yachts, Old Gaffers and Spirit of Tradition Yachts are all welcome to sail varied courses set in the Solent with free high teas, great value parties and suppers at different club venues. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Charles Stanley Direct Cowes Classics Week is expecting up to 180 yachts to attend the event for some spectacular Solent racing. The Royal London Yacht Club will be welcoming the many classic classes, some of which have competed since 2008 and others which have joined in along the way as the first decade has seen the event grow into one of the most iconic on the yachting calendar.

Classics including a number of 6 metres while a strong showing of Darings, Solent Sunbeams and Swallows and Bembridge One Designs will all be attending the five day event (or four for some classes) which starts at Cowes on 17 July.
