The Solent’s sailing community is invited to take part in the celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at Cowes on Saturday 6th August 2022.

The Solent’s boating community is invited to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime celebration of HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at Cowes on Saturday 6th August.

Yacht and sailing clubs in the Solent region can join in the event by ‘saving the date’ and registering their interest in attending by emailing [email protected] as soon as possible.

The day will begin with the option of breakfast, followed by a review of all participating vessels by VIPs from across the region, with racing off Bramble Bank. All boats, from RIBs to sailing and motor vessels, can register to be part of the official programme.

A Silver Spitfire Air Display and prize-giving will be followed by an afternoon of live music and entertainment at a free concert at the Cowes Yacht Haven with a ‘soon to be announced’ headline act.

A committee of sailing organisations, class associations and clubs from across the Solent region is organising the sailing and entertainment planned on the Solent and at Cowes Yacht Haven, following this year’s Cowes Week. All yacht and sailing clubs in the Solent region are being asked to send up to 20 representative vessels to participate in the event.
