Cowes Week 3rd to 10th August 2013
Cowes Week! Do we need to say any more? Cowes
Week regatta has earned the reputation of being “The most
famous sailing regatta in the World” and now forms part of
the British Summer social calendar.
Up to 1,000 boats and 8,000 crew race over eight
days in the Central, Eastern and Western Solent.
Cowes attracts the greatest number of yachts and
sailors to compete in some of the most challenging
races set in these world-renowned waters.
With a history spanning nearly 180 years
and sailing's best party atmosphere, it's easy to
see why the event is one of the World's premier
sporting events and the Number 1 yachting Regatta.
Cowes Week is not for the faint hearted with serious
racing and serious partying, it is not necessary to
be an expert sailor/racer although some spinnaker
sailing experience is required. Pre-event race
training will be offered if you feel that you are
low on experience.
On Shore Fun - Lets Party
The Cowes beer tent comes alive as soon as the
racing finishes for the day as crews swap stories over a
drink or two. The fun is none stop and you will wonder how
you find the time to race.
The town of Cowes provides excellent facilities, with plenty of pubs,
bars, restaurants and cafes to choose from.
The 'Must Do' Event on the International Sailing
Calendar - Whether an amateur or professional sailor, a
World Champion or an Olympic medallist, this is the EVENT

performance. Elegant cabin design affords space below and features
outstandingly high levels of comfort.
