Cowes Week

29th July - 5th August 2017

Cowes Week is an 8 day sailing regatta that take place each August on the Isle of Wight. It is one of the longest-running sporting events in UK history, dating back to 1826 when the regatta first took place with a fleet of only seven boats lined up on the start line!

Cowes Week today attracts up to 1,000 boats, and is the world's best-known sailing regatta. During the event the Solent makes for a truly spectacular sight, with 100 year old wooden dayboats sharing the waters with ultra-modern machines made of carbon fibre, and with small dinghys racing alongside maxi yachts. The atmosphere across the town of Cowes is transformed into that of a festival during Cowes Week, with 100,000 spectators who come to watch the sailing and enjoy the parties and live entertainment.

The event is completely free to attend as a spectator and many of the races of the races can be enjoyed from the shore.
