Royal Yacht Squadron to host Bicentenary Regatta

Royal Yacht Squadron to host Bicentenary Regatta

The Royal Yacht Squadron will issue its Preliminary Notice of Regatta this week as preparations get under way for the Club’s Bicentenary Regatta to be held in 2015.

Founded in 1815, the Club will mark its 200 years with an invitational regatta during 25th – 31st July 2015 at its historic home in Cowes with racing on the Solent and a race around the Isle of Wight. The Royal Yacht Squadron has invited 25 clubs from 19 countries to send crews to the event with the option of taking part in a one design regatta with yachts provided by the Organising Authority or participating in IRC racing. Additionally two crews of four aged up to 30 from up to ten of the invited clubs will take part in a J80 team racing competition.

A very high level of interest has already been shown in the event. A number of J-Class yachts have indicated their interest in taking part in the Bicentenary Regatta, and Nautor’s Swan will be adding the Transatlantic Race to their 2015 ClubSwan calendar with a provisional plan to have a Swan class in the regatta.
