The 16th edition of the Panerai British Classic Week returns to Cowes from 8-15 July 2017. The annual regatta of British Classic Yacht Club attracts entries from all over the world for some fantastic racing in the Solent including an Around the Island Race on Monday 10th July.


Don't miss the Panerai British Classic Week, the UK's premier classic yacht regatta. 2017 marks the 16th 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 an Around the Island Race sponsored by EFG International on Monday 10th July 2017.

Getting there is really easy!

For spectators - the fleet will be based at a number of marinas including Cowes Yacht Haven - please see the 'What's on' tab for the sailing programme.
