18th to 25th July
Welcome to Panerai British Classic Week, the classic yacht regatta in the UK. Now in its 12th year, the annual Regatta of the BRITISH CLASSIC YACHT CLUB not only attracts entries from these shores but also regularly from Europe and occasionally from Canada. The regatta is perfect for classic boat enthusiasts to enjoy some fantastic racing and to get together with like-minded individuals with the same appreciation of owning a classic boat.
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 2015 regatta, taking place from 18th – 25th July, looks to be an exciting one with an anticipated bigger entry this year with many classic yachts coming from around the globe to race in the Solent. The racing is once again being organised by Royal Yacht Squadron Racing with a six race series plus a stand-alone Around the Island Race sponsored by EFG International on Monday 20th July, following the original clockwise course of the first America’s Cup.
Panerai British Classic Week is part of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge.
