To mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Uffa Fox, the Royal London Yacht Club are holding a series of exciting events in Cowes from 18-21 August 2022.
To celebrate the life of a man so ahead of his time, a regatta will be held for all the Uffa crafts – a once in a lifetime opportunity for owners of Uffa designed boats.
The Classic Boat Museum will be organising a series of events including seminars and an exhibition of Uffa’s various dinghies.
The Uffa Fox celebrations will be followed by the Flying Fifteen European championships organised by the Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club from the 20th to 26th August 2022.
It is appropriate that the Royal London Yacht Club should be chosen to organise the sailing as Uffa was a stalwart of the RLYC and, as Chairman of the Sailing Committee, was instrumental in the resurgence of sailing after the Second World War.
Racing will be for 100% Uffa Fox designed dinghies, keelboats and classic boats, with some classes’ racing areas along the shore to attract spectators.
Along with various off-the-water tours and activities, evening social events have also been planned for participants, their families and Uffa enthusiasts.
