Don't miss the Panerai British Classic Week, the UK's premier classic yacht regatta. 2018 marks the 17th annual Regatta of the BRITISH CLASSIC YACHT CLUB which attracts entries from Britain and overseas. It's an occasion for classic boat enthusiasts and spectators to enjoy some excellent racing in the Solent and to spend some time with like-minded sailors.

The regatta, which is part of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge, has been held every year since the America's Cup Jubilee was held in Cowes in 2001. The seven race series is organised by Royal Yacht Squadron Racing and includes a Nab Tower Race on Monday 16th July 2018.
