Cowes Week

31st July - 7th August

Cowes Week is the largest annual sporting event in the UK after the London Marathon, with almost 1,000 yachts and 8,000 competitors taking part, making it one of the most prestigious ways to entertain clients or reward staff.

Cowes, as it is now known, is renowned as the yachting centre of the world. During Cowes Week the town becomes a lively and bustling haven for sailing enthusiasts, either taking part or viewing from the land. In conjunction with the racing is a vibrant social scene, which is largely centred on the beer tent erected in the centre of the yacht haven.

One of the most exciting parts of the day will be watching the starts, as all the yachts racing converge on a small patch of water at start line close to the Royal Yacht Squadron. It is here, in these congested waters, that the adrenaline really starts to flow in the final seconds before the racing commences.

Cowes Weeks grand finale is the firework display held on the Friday evening, which is a truly breath-taking show. The annual Cowes Week Regatta fireworks display is considered to be the very best of the summer season displays in the UK. It certainly attracts one of the largest audiences of around 170,000 people, second only to the Edinburgh Hogmanay celebrations.


The brand new flagship of the Jeanneau fleet brings the very latest in yacht design, style, comfort and technology to the fleet. The 54DS has a huge cockpit with twin steering wheels and easy to handle sail systems. Down below she has a luxurious interior with a 15ft wide main saloon with leather upholstery and panoramic views of the sea out of the large deck saloon windows. The 54’ Yachts offer state of the art facilities, luxurious comfort and for those who wish to sit back and relax – electric winches.
