Classic Yacht Regattas 2021

Regattas from November 2020 – October 2021.

It has been a year of cancellations and postponements on the global classic regatta circuit due to the Covid-19 pandemic. So here we are once again to announce the possibilities for classic yacht racing over the next 12 months. Not only is there a packed schedule but we also kick off with the oldest trophy in international sport, The America’s Cup. More regattas will be included as and when they come in.
