Cowes Classic Week Attracts New Sponsor

8th January 2014
Cowes Classic Week Attracts New Sponsor

#classicboat – Charles Stanley has announce it has agreed headline terms of sponsorship for the 2014 Cowes Classics Week sailing event. The regatta, organised by the Royal London Yacht Club, is one of the highlights of the Classic sailing circuit and this year will hopefully see over 150 yachts with some 700 crew competing in the Solent.
The event will run from the 21st- 25th July 2014 and this year will draw entries from a wide-range of yachts and dayboats from ex-America's Cup 12-Metres to the smallest boats, the two-man Flying Fifteen Class. The ever popular day boats including the XODs, Darings, Sunbeams and Classic Day boat class traditionally draw the largest fleets whilst the Classic Cruiser/Racer division will be boosted by the inclusion of the SCODS, Twisters and Stellas, and the glass Nicholson 32's and 36's and Rustler 31's – now 50 years old. Furthermore, both the XOD and Sunbeam fleets will be using the event as a significant championship in 2014.
The 8 Metre Class Association is also confident of significant attendees and 6 Metres will continue to support the event, making the 2014 Charles Stanley Cowes Classic Week a 'must-do' event on the South Coast yachting calendar. Family entries are encouraged and the event looks forward to welcoming previous competitors in this, its seventh year of establishment. On the Solent there will be five daily courses run by the Royal London Yacht Club supported by the Royal Corinthian YC, Royal Victoria YC, Island Sailing Club and Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club.
