COWES WEEK (end!) 2012
Everyone should "do" Cowes week once in their lifetime!! Face paced and great fun, it’s an adrenaline rush of a week! The atmosphere is electric and the sailing fantastic - unmatched anywhere else in the world"
About the event:
Cowes Week offers some of the most exciting racing conditions on the compact Solent waters, which is as exhilarating to watch as it is to compete in. Cowes regatta extends over a magnificent 8 days and is not for the faint hearted! Serious racing is of course also accompanied by some serious socialising.
Strong tides, erratic weather and 900 competitors, certainly make this a challenging event! There is always one day when you wake, turn your suntanned face up to the grey skies and wonder if are we really going to race in this?!!'
The infamous Cowes beer tent comes alive straight after racing as the crews come ashore to relax and swap stories over a few post race drinks. The fun is nonstop and the buzz is really exhilarating.
The village of Cowes is a wonderful place in the sunshine. The tiny high street is a hive of activity during Cowes week with excellent restaurants and pubs which are all full of life and plenty of great 'yachtie' shops as well.
One of the social highlights is the final night fireworks on the Friday. An un-missable night out! In the evenings, there is a huge programme of entertainment with well-known bands featured on the main stage.
And then, there’s the general socialising!! If you work it out...900 boats with an average of 10 people aboard that’s ....9000 sailors...no wonder lil ole Cowes is buzzing!! Sadly, it’s still exceptionally male dominated so the beer tents are still packed with happy chaps having lots of racing discussions!!
There are a huge range of pubs, restaurants and even black tie dinners to attend so we can help coordinate the social programme to make sure the whole team are happy!
Why not come along and join in. You can come on your own because you will be looked after by us girls! You are never alone on a GirlsforSail event.....especially if you wear your team shirt!
