Eagleby Classic IOM Regatta


Ahoy, seasoned skippers and aficionados of classic IOM yachts! Gather 'round and heed the call of the waves, for Eagleby Radio Yacht Club proudly announces a regatta like no other. Picture this: a fleet of majestic classics, each boasting a design harkening back to the era before 2010. Untouched by modernity, these vessels stand as testaments to timeless craftsmanship and elegance on the water.

‘Classic’ IOMs are prescribed as having a design launched before 2010 and being non-tumblehome (where the hull grows narrower above the waterline than its beam).

On the 2nd of June 2024, Eagleby's tranquil waters will play host to a spectacle of skill and nostalgia as these vintage beauties take to the waves. But this isn't just any regatta; it's a celebration of tradition, camaraderie, and the sheer joy of sailing. The Racing Rules of Sailing 2021 – 2024, augmented by Appendix E (Radio Sailing), shall govern our noble competition, ensuring fair play and thrilling contests.

Racers, prepare your vessels, polish those hulls, and trim those sails, for the starting gun shall sound at 1030 sharp. And fear not, for after the exhilarating races have concluded, a delectable sausage sizzle awaits, providing the perfect opportunity to swap tales of triumph and camaraderie.

So, whether you're a seasoned skipper or a curious newcomer, don't miss your chance to participate in this unforgettable event.
