Cowes Race Charters



The Etchells Fleet is keen to encourage prospective owners and teams to come and see for themselves the friendly and fierce competition within the renown Cowes Etchells Racing Series, without the initial commitment of buying a boat. The class offers a very attractive charter package to prospective Etchells sailors and teams wishing to participate in a trial, or simply come and test their competitive skills, in the Etchells fleet.

The key features of this fantastic package include:

  • A ‘step on/step off’ offer, allowing you to arrive at Cowes Yacht Haven supplied with a highly competitive boat, sails onboard, boat polished and in the water – ready to race and win.
  • Boats are provided with the latest Etchells racing systems, which have evolved significantly in recent years.
  • Boats provided with key equipment such as compass, radio, battery etc.
  • Available to: race crews from around the World, teams who have raced Etchells before, or new teams who want to experience and try the class.

  • Chartering – bringing own sails: £750.00 per day
