Panerai British Classic Yacht Week 2018

The high temperature brought fickle winds to the Solent for the 2018 Panerai British Classic Yacht Regatta held in July. On most days it wasn't until noon that the breeze built to provide a beautiful sea and sky scene for the yacht racing that took place. The fantastic Ladies Race held on Wednesday is always a particular highlight where sometimes novice skippers, under watchful eye, helm these stunning yachts around the course set by the Royal Yacht Squadron.
It was a fantastic week of racing, an event I love covering.
The eventual winner was the wonderful Spirit Yacht 'Flight of Ufford' shown above.
