The Cowes Classic Week racing regatta on the Isle of Wight, UK is now open to GRP yachts! As long as they were designed fifty years ago. The Hurley 22 was designed in 1965 so now qualifies as a classic, as do the Felicity, Silhouette, 18 and 20. So, as we already knew, the Hurley 22 is a classic yacht. But now its official!

Apparently in USA they call classic GRP yachts 'Glassics'. Love it!

For more information about the Rally go to the Events page.



I purchased my Hurley 27, called Karjala, in the UK some years ago . She carried me solo via Gibraltar and the Cape Verde Islands to Suape in Brazil and subsequently with my partner up the east coast of South America where I left her in Suriname in the village of Domburg. She was stolen from there and may have been taken back to Europe . If you should come across her I would appreciate an e-mail. Thanks John Somerville.

Are you thinking of buying a Hurley 22?
