Welcome to Panerai British Classic Week, the premier classic yacht regatta in the UK. Now in its 15th year, the annual Regatta of the BRITISH CLASSIC YACHT CLUB not only attracts entries from Britain but also regularly from Europe and this year from Australia and New Zealand. The regatta is an occasion for classic boat enthusiasts to enjoy good racing and to spend time with other sailors who share the same appreciation of classics.
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 2016 regatta, is taking place from 16th – 23rd July, and we are anticipating a wide entry with yachts from around the globe looking to race in the Solent. The racing is once again being organised by Royal Yacht Squadron Racing with a seven race series including an Around the Island Race sponsored by EFG International on Monday 18th July.
Panerai British Classic Week is part of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge.
