Cowes Corinthian YC Burgee 200pxEach of the Cowes Yacht Clubs has a unique atmosphere and vibe. Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club, tucked away in Birmingham Road, is perhaps one of the least known, but the Club has become renowned for throwing open its doors and providing one of the social highlights of Cowes Classics Week.

Start your regatta with one of the most popular socials of the week! Come and enjoy a welcome drink followed by a thoroughly good Hog Roast with live music playing throughout the evening.

The venue is the relaxed waterfront surroundings of Cowes Corinthian YC who have a marquee in case of inclement weather. Sold out for each of the last 5 years, you should book your tickets early. Dress code is decidedly smart casual.
