RS21s debut at Cowes Week 2019

Cowes week is the pinnacle of the UK’s Keelboat racing scene, the Solent will be welcoming hundreds of boats to the South Coast in 4 weeks’ time, and this year with the addition of the RS21.

Lendy Cowes week, the world’s best-known sailing regatta, brings together sailors from around the world for an amazing week of challenging but fun racing. The RS21s will be setting off from the Swallow class start line on Saturday 10th August- Monday 12th August to compete in round the cans racing on the Solent. The racing is set to be competitive and the RS21 Cowes Week trophy, will be presented at the regatta prize giving on Friday 16th August.

In addition to the on-water antics, Cowes Week also has a legendary social side, with the main village turning itself into a festival ashore; with open air bars, live music stages and many famous black-tie balls. Don’t miss out!
