Suzanne and Alan share this annual roundup of activities and events held during Cowes Week.
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.
Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will go head to head in major regatta in support of Their Royal Highnesses’ charitable causes. Each boat taking part will represent one of eight charities and the winning team will be awarded the historic trophy The King’s Cup.
