Be part of the SYC Cowes Week Challenge

31 July - 6 August 2021

Taking place from Saturday 31st July to Friday 6th August, Cowes Week is one of the biggest and longest-running regattas in the world. Adaptations to this popular event are being made to be as Covid secure as possible.

This Year SYC plans to take up to four identical Sonar Keel Boats to join the white Fleet and for you to come and sail.

Members are invited to sail the boats either as full crews or as an individual member, with the flexibility of participating in the days that suit you, or in the whole week, early bird prices now available.

Cowes Week offers seven days of high calibre competition. With all sailing abilities welcome and more than 40 races taking place daily throughout Cowes Week, it’s a great time to take your passion for sailing to another level.

The entertainment ashore will be just as exciting, however this year the usual stages are unlikely to return to prevent bringing too many people together.

Sussex Yacht Club will be offering the opportunity to race within the popular white fleet, putting competitors against one another in a fleet of identical Sonar keelboats. The boats will be available both skippered and bare boat for individuals, teams and companies that would like to take on the challenge. Victory belongs to the crew with the greatest skill and teamwork.

Please keep an eye on the club website and ‘In the wind’ for updates. If you are interested please let us know on
