About The Event
Inspired to give racing a go but thought it was something only professional sailors could do? Well think again!
Since 1826 Cowes Week has been a major fixture in the sailing calendar and is the largest and most famous sailing regatta in the world. Every year around 1,000 yachts and 8,500 competitors from all over the world head to the port of Cowes on the sunny Isle of Wight, to take part in 8 days of adrenaline-packed racing on boats. These range from dinghies and one design yachts to multihulls and 100 foot super yachts. Competitors include world-class and Olympic yachtsmen and women and weekend leisure sailors.
The fun doesn't stop when the racing's finished for the day...quite the opposite! For one week in August, Cowes transforms itself into the party capital of the south coast - with a festival-like atmosphere and different events and parties happening every night you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to evening entertainment. The whole week concludes with a HUGE water-based fireworks display on the last Friday of Cowes Week - the sight of hundreds of boats at anchor watching the spectacle is a sight to behold indeed!!
Our HALF WEEK package is the perfect way to participate in the Cowes Week Experience without such a large time commitment! Join us for exhilarating training and racing - 4 awesome days on the water.
Start on Friday with a race training day, followed by 3 full days racing: Saturday, Sunday, Monday. A great way to enjoy the parties over the weekend and not take too much time off work!
