Sussex Yacht Club



So Cowes is just around the corner and we are hoping to take part in the fun with 3 Sonars, Cork 1720 supported by a RIB and two accommodation craft.

We have the following teams and opportunities:

A) Adult Race Team (Sonar)

This consists of experienced sailors that will sail all week chasing the chocolates and this craft is full

B) Youth Team (Sonar)

This team has Dom Holden as skipper with 4 youths sailing each day

C) Cowes Experience (Sonar)

This is for those who would like to experience Cowes racing with an experienced club skipper. You can book from 1 day to all 7.

D) Cowes week improvers (1720)

This is for those with some further experience and would like to sail in an Asymmetric craft.

E) RIB Rides to follow the racing

The club takes a RIB to support the club craft and transport the crews and tow craft as required. When the craft are racing the boat will be available to follow some of the fleets and see the racing up close with a skipper.

Below is a breakdown of costs for each activity

Note these costs are based on early bird rates and will increase by £30 after 12:00 pm June 30th

(Example: 7 days Sailing adult: £595
