Following on from the success of the inaugural regatta in 2018 which saw 24 boats attending, organisers are delighted to announce that entry to the next edition of the Cowes Spring Classics is now open. Taking place taking place over the weekend of 17 – 19 May, organisers Mary Scott-Jackson of MSJ Events and Martin Nott, a wooden boat builder, are expecting even more participating yachts in 2019 with interested owners already sending their entries in.

The racing is once again being organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club and the regatta will be based at Shepards Marina, using the historic Sugar Store as its social hub. Entries are encouraged from Cruisers and Cruiser racers, Gaff Rigged yachts and Pilot Cutters, Day Boats and Raters, Classic Metre yachts, affordable Classic Cruisers plus modern Spirit of Tradition yachts.

Co-organiser Martin Nott said: “Holding the regatta in mid-May provides a great season opener for classic boats of all sizes, big and small, and owners can either enter for the racing, or join our 'cruising class' and come along with their boat to enjoy the friendly, relaxed atmosphere with fellow enthusiasts.
