Flying Fifteen Class in Cowes for an exceptional anniversary year
The Flying Fifteen 75th Anniversary International Regatta, comprising the 2022 European Championship and 75th Anniversary Race, will be hosted by Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club from 20-26 August 2022.
Over the previous week, August 18-22, there will be an open regatta weekend and a series of shore events celebrating the life and work of Uffa Fox. The event is called Uffa Fox 2022.
As Afloat previously reported, Uffa designed the Flying Fifteen in late 1947. There are several stories of how it grew from a eureka moment in the bath to labor stretching a mold International 14 in the workshop!
Sailing will be at the heart of the event which will also include static displays for historic boats
