Cowes Week is a key part of the British sporting calendar taking place in early August each year.
These dates result from early traditions when the great and the good came to Cowes between Goodwood and the Glorious Twelfth – day one of the grouse shooting season.
The event is a great mix of competitive sailing and a vibrant social scene and has evolved enormously since the early days; it now attracts up to 1,000 competing boats, around 8,500 competitors and at least 100,000 visitors.
If you are not taking part there is still masses of shoreside entertainment through the Regatta period.
