Cowes Week 2021
July 31 - August 6£394.00
Cowes Week Ltd (CWL) is delighted to announce that entries for Cowes Week 2021 are now open. Whilst this is somewhat later than usual, the event is carrying over nearly 200 entries from 2020. The team have been inundated with questions about the opening of the entry website and have every expectation that it will be a bumper year.
For 2021, there will be eight IRC classes, Black Group One Designs such as the J/109 as well as 17 One Design Day Boat classes in the White Group.
A completely new class to Cowes Week this year is the Club Cruiser Division, where it is planned to run two starts each day, depending on the number of entries. There will be a further four starts in the Performance Cruiser Division. The decision was taken to split cruisers into Performance and Club divisions to recognise the very different performance characteristics across the range of yacht designs, as well as the sometimes more family orientated crew lists in the club cruisers. The team behind Cowes Week believe this will deliver high-quality racing for everybody, with similar boats and like-minded crews in the different divisions, and are delighted to be able to offer a new trophy for the Club Cruiser Division sponsored by The Cruising Association.
Enter before the end of May 2021 and you can take advantage of the Early Bird rate of £394 for the whole regatta or £83 daily.
Since 1826 Cowes Week has played a key part in the British sporting summer calendar and is one of the UK’s longest running and most successful sporting events. It now stages up to 40 daily races for around 1,000 boats and is the largest sailing regatta of its kind in the world.
The event offers a great mix of competitive sailing and social activities. The 8,500 competitors range from Olympic and world class professionals to weekend sailors. In excess of 100,000 spectators come to watch the sailing, enjoy the parties and live entertainment, and to experience the unique atmosphere. It is genuinely a one-of-a-kind event.
