Cowes Yacht Haven
There's nothing quite like Cowes Week; the oldest and largest annual sailing regatta in the World and an iconic feature of the British sporting calendar.
The event boasts an 8-day schedule combining competitive racing and great fun for the 8,000 competitors racing and 100,000 spectators who enjoy a fantastic line up of shore-side entertainment day and night. Visitors can watch the sailing action from the shore or opt to get out on the water aboard a spectator boat.
The famous fireworks take place on the final Friday of the event. With so much to see and do, keep track of the event plans as they develop in the build-up to 6th - 13th August via the official site:
These sailing days will appeal to both sailors and newcomers alike. You can spend the day pulling on ropes or helming the yacht, Or just relax and watch all of the excitement from the comfort of your own yacht...
You will join the yacht and meet the skipper/instructor and the other crew. You will be shown around the boat, and, after a safety briefing will set sail.
If you wish you can be involved ‘hands-on’ from the beginning and might even find yourself helming the boat down the Solent.
All Venture Sailing skippers are chosen for their experience, patience and understanding. They will show you how to do everything from the beginning so that you are able to participate right from the start.
