Cowes Week Ltd, the organisers of Lendy Cowes Week, the world’s largest regatta, is delighted to announce that in a new and exciting development the 2018 regatta will see the introduction of a new Double-handed class.
Double-handed racing has recently become incredibly successful worldwide, both inshore and offshore and this new class reflects the demand for, and interest in, Double-handed sailing. Entries are invited for boats with IRC ratings between 0.900 to 1.085.
Racing will be held as part of the Black Group and courses will be about 3½ hours long with an interesting range of wind angles, but somewhat fewer legs than for the standard IRC classes. The courses will, however, be challenging and we expect a highly competitive fleet. The class will be offered its own start every day and, if there is enough demand going forward we would be delighted to offer two class starts, enabling a wider range of boats to compete, including some of the smaller boats.
