British Classic Week – 16-23 July 2022


Saturday 23rd July 2022. Congratulations to Kostia Belkin and his crew on Viola who again unleashed their full potential at the 20th British Classic Week, one of the biggest classic yacht events in the UK.

The 40+ strong fleet of sailing boats completed six races in variable conditions ranging from a light breeze to over 20 knots on the final day. After some hotly disputed races, the results reflect the high level of sailors. After her recent victory in the Fife Regatta in Fairlie, Scotland, and 2nd place at the FIFE event at the Royal Yacht Squadron, Viola ended her British tour in style, finishing 3rd in Class 3, 6th in corrected time for the fleet, 8th in the Line Honours category and 12th in the women’s race.
