EVE will be taking place in the famous Cowes classic yacht regatta week,  where 100- 200 boats will be racing in the Solent.  

Celebrating its 16th year, Cowes Classics Week is all about racing traditional yachts on the water and enjoying fabulous social events ashore. And with Eve been one of the most historical classic racing boats, we will feel right at home! 

120 boats will be sailing varied courses set in the Solent including Metre boats, Classic Racing Dayboats, Classic Yachts, Old Gaffers and Spirit of Tradition Yachts. Racing will run from the 8th July to the 14th July 2023 and there will be two races a day or three if weather conditions permit. 

The event attracts a wide variety of classic yachts ranging from fleets of one-design dayboats, to unique classics from a bygone era.

The week will hold many social parties held at different club venues as well as a gala awards ceremony to celebrate the sailing. 

.Your experience onboard Eve will start on the first day of the regatta week around Englands famous water ways, the Solent.

During the Race week you will have a great time flying around the solent, as well as learning about the safety onboard, race crew roles, and the basics of race sailing including main, mizzen and jib set, tack, gybe, reef, downwind pole, asymmetric and symmetric spinnakers packing, hoisting, trimming and mizzen staysail.

This regatta is open to everyone, including those with no previous experience. We usually have onboard 5 professional sailors to provide you with expert advice and assistance, if required.
