Etchells Training Regatta 13 March
Etchells Spring Series

Situated in West Cowes just South of the Yacht Haven Events Centre, the Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club is ideally situated to access the world-renowned sailing waters of the Solent. You can be on the race course 10-20mins after leaving the club. In the main we use the waters of the central Solent for racing classes such as Dragons, Darings, Etchells, Sonars, XODs and Flying 15’s. In windy conditions we can make use of the shelter offered by Osborne Bay and Peel Bank, which helps us keep your regatta going what ever the weather. If it’s too windy to sail then the delights of Cowes with its boutique shops and great restaurants are perfect for whiling away an afternoon!

The club has been organizing racing for many years and has built up a very good reputation for both Championship laid courses and round the cans type racing. We regularly host regattas of 30+ boats but have also hosted 100+ Flying 15’s for their World Championships.
