Charles Stanley Direct Cowes Classics Week 2017
Published 12:33 on 22 Jul 2017
CSDCCW, now in its 10th year, and well-established as one of the major regattas within the Solent calendar. This year led by Chairman Sir Richard Ottaway and Principal Race Officer Gill Smith, around 170 entries, 700 sailors and, with grateful thanks from us all, over 90 volunteers without whose efforts and commitment the racing and the social programme filling every evening of the Regatta, would not be possible.
On Monday we ran the Flying Fifteen Anniversary Race with the winner receiving the Queen Victoria Jubilee Cup and all competitors enjoying the birthday cake. On Friday at the Charles Stanley Direct Final Prizegiving Sir Richard Ottaway was proud to announce that our official charity Cowes Sea Cadets raised over £1,700 during the week.
The Royal London would like to thank title sponsor Charles Stanley Direct and supporting sponsors Winkworth, Haines Boatyard, Henri Lloyd, Harken, Kendalls Fine Art, Red Funnel, Cowes Harbour Commission and Classic Boat magazine.
