COWES WEEK

About Cowes Week event:

Join us to race Cowes Week!

Cowes Week 2022 – Winners of the Edward Wheelan Trophy for best sailing school and charter yacht, 2nd in Performance A and 3rd overall in Performance Classes.

We offer individual crew places and whole boat charters.

Cowes Week is one of the largest yachting regattas in the world, it’s been running since 1826 and now attracts yachts and racers from all over the world. Racing takes place on the Solent, which is a challenging stretch of water between the Isle of Wight and the ‘North Island’ as the locals call the mainland.

Global Yacht Racing offers racing in two divisions:

Cowes Week is hosted under the Cowes Combined Clubs organisation which means that the event is run by all the yachts clubs here in Cowes which take it in turns to run the daily races. Running over 7 days, this regatta is full on with some fantastic après sail activities.

Where?

Our Cowes Week campaign is based out of Cowes Yacht Haven in Cowes on the Isle of Wight. There is usually one race per day lasting around 4 to 6 hours and most racing utilises the many laid race marks around the Solent itself.

Details of our regatta packages

Like most yacht racing events that we participate in, we include yacht race training, on the Friday before the regatta starts, to bring the crew together and to get the most out of the racing.

Included in your race package:

Professional Skipper

All safety gear

Lunch during racing

Regatta entry and berthing in Cowes

Why we love Cowes Week

We’ve been racing in Cowes or over 10 years and its right on our doorstep. It’s a challenging regatta with strong tides, interesting race courses that you just don’t get in other regattas and really good shoreside activities with something for everyone. A great event to go with the Taittinger regatta or the RTI race.
