10th Charles Stanley Direct Cowes Classics Week: all weathers, mixed fortunes, superb racing

21 July 2017

The winner of the 10th Charles Stanley Direct Cowes Classics Week put his success down to a bit of practice and the tightly competitive Swallow fleet which keeps him on his toes year round. Mike Wigmore and his crew, who brought his Swallow Gwaihir across the Solent from Itchenor, explained “It’s great coming to the Classics.  We love the combination of windward leeward sailing and round the cans courses.  I can truly say we’ve never had a better regatta.” Gwaihir won with the lowest points score across the fifteen classes and divisions taking part.
