The structure of the fleets, division of boats and the breakdown to classes is subject to change. What follows sets out  an overview of the fleets and competitors should refer to the contents of the Notice of Race for further information. The ultimate class structure will be made when the final list of entrants is known.

Classes for 2024:

IRC

There will be a dedicated fleet for inshore IRC racing on Olympic style courses. The entry will be split over a number of classes that will be announced nearer the time and confirmed when the entry is complete. The schedule will incorporate one costal race, traditionally the Round Inch Race, however higher rated boats may be directed to a longer course.

One Design

There will be a dedicated fleet for One Design racing on Olympic style courses, centred on the established Clyde classes. Entries from multiple classes will be considered and prizes will be awarded in any fleet with over 5 boats. (NB Smaller fleets may be amalgamated for starting purposes.)

CYCA

There will be a number of CYCA spinnaker and white sail classes which will be announced nearer the time and confirmed when the entry is complete. It should be noted that CYCA competitors will not sail Olympic style courses as the fleet will utilise permanent buoys, islands and semi-permanent laid marks to form longer costal courses. The schedule will incorporate the Round Inch Race, however higher rated boats may be directed to a longer course.

CYCA (Introductory Class)

SS24 will incorporate classes for 5 or more cruising boats who would like to experience attending a racing event, perhaps for the first time. The racing will be in an area close to, but separate from, the main CYCA fleet and the experience will incorporate a level of guidance and instruction.

CYCA (Two Handed Class)

There is no plan to incorporate two handed classes at the 2024 event however, if there is notified interest of 5 boats or more in any CYCA white sail class, then separate prizes will be awarded.
