It was thought it would take place at the end of July, but organisers say the tides will be better earlier in the month.

Instead, the event will follow the The Windeler Cup (for small keelboats) and 2021's Round the Island Race.

Cowes Classics Week usually attracts more than 140 entries.

Events will include Cowes Classics Day on Thursday July 8 2021.
