Suzanne and Alan give us a round-up of what to expect at this year's Cowes Week sailing regatta.
Cowes is home to one of the most famous sailing regattas in the World, Cowes Week, so it’s little wonder readers have a keen interest in the sport of sailing.
With the many sailing clubs around the Wight, Islanders prove that it’s a ‘sport for all’ and not just those with the means. Here you’ll find all news relating to the sport and leisure activity of sailing.
A truly inspirational teenager from the Island who is severely disabled through Athetoid Cerebral Palsy, will attempt to sail from France to England at the beginning of next month. Please show your support if you can.
