The Dragons and all keelboat classes are invited to enter the 65th anniversary race of the CCYC Keelboat Race Around the Wight.
DATE: Saturday 9 June 2018
The Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club was founded over the winter 1952/3 and to mark its first season the club rather ambitiously held a Round the Isle of Wight Race for Dinghies on 6th June 1953. Line honours were taken by Ian Proctor, John Oakley and Cliff Norbury sailing the prototype Osprey in a fleet that included Uffa Fox, Bruce Banks, Jack Knights, Claude Nethercot, Beecher Moore, the Jardine twins, Jack Holt, Bob Casson, Max Aitken and Richard Creagh-Osborne.
To mark the 65th anniversary of that race the club will be holding a Keelboat Race Around the Wight on Saturday 9th June 2018 which is open to boats that were eligible to race in White Group in Cowes Week in 2017.
