ENTRIES OPEN FOR COWES CLASSICS WEEK IN JULY

Published at:

The Royal London Yacht Club, organisers of Cowes Classics Week, have confirmed that entries for the 13th edition of the regatta are now open. 

The 2020 regatta is scheduled to take place from Saturday 25th to Friday 31st July with racing from Monday 27th July. The Notice of Race is now available to download from the website.

The regatta is hoping to attract a wide range of classic yachts, from Metre Boats, Classic Racing Dayboats, to Classic Yachts, Old Gaffers and Spirit of Tradition yachts. In the Dayboat classes, the XOD Class, which regularly attracts over 50 entries, is expected to be the largest fleet once again and the numbers are expected to increase in the Vintage Dragon class.

New for this year, Thursday 30th July is Cowes Classics Day and will include a display of over 50 classic cars on the Parade together with exhibits from the Cowes Classic Boat Museum and classic power boats on the London Landing and RYS Yacht Haven.

Regatta Chairman, David Gower says:

“At the time of writing, the RLYC intend to run the regatta as planned from 25 to 31 July 2020. However, the well-being of our staff, volunteers and competitors is paramount, so we will be closely monitoring the situation and if required, will cancel the regatta.

“In the event that we do cancel the event all entry fees and social event costs will be refunded in FULL. For the avoidance of doubt we will not postpone the event. If we are unable to continue on 25th July the next regatta will be 2021.”

Seems as thought the upper classes have already been given a vaccine then. One wonders if so, how many would ‘care’ about spreading the virus to the plebs, few imo, unless it was the ‘charming nanny’ who the children simply adore, though we can’t recall her name, and the ‘jolly hard working gardener’ out in all weathers, for them to boast of what ‘they’ have done with their huge spread, albeit only signed a cheque, or some other mini servant, which amuses, for a very short while.

I wonder if ‘PC Fiona’ will be issuing tickets for those sunbathing on their poop decks.

See the real division and corruption in our society. Money doesn’t talk, it swears.

The classic regatta is only for the preservationists with restored wooden boats and is not the Cowes Week regatta for the hooray Henries.

Why encourage more visitors to invade us at this time, should be stopped forthwith.

All (well, most) are welcome in normal times, it is just that these are not normal times, nor will be by August either.

I don’t believe it, once again the rich think they can go against the government guidelines. This should be stopped. Stupidity.
