Cowes Week 31st July to 7th August 2010

Cowes Week is the longest running sailing regatta in the world. For over 180 years the event has attracted entries from some of the biggest names in the sailing world, as well as being the pivotal event in the social calendar for almost every sailor from professionals to amateur enthusiasts.

With over 900 yachts entered and at least 35 race starts every day, Cowes Week always promises fantastic spectator potential. 2007 saw the launch of the event's new Super-Zero series to lure the world's fastest ocean racing yachts to the regatta!

The best place to watch the racing is, of course, out on the water. From the comfort of a motor boat we can take you up close to the action. Why not treat your clients or employees to the experience of a lifetime as they relax on the flybridge of one of our stunning boats, champagne in hand, watching the worlds' finest racing yachts battle it out in front of their eyes.

Whether you are looking for a day out on the water, or would like your charter to cover the whole event, we can arrange a package to suit your needs. We can also arrange for drinks and canapés to be supplied, and for a hostess to keep everyone's glasses topped-up.

A typical Cowes Week charter day could involve:

9.30am - Guests arrive at the boat in Southampton, and are welcomed on board by your Skipper/Hostess with pastries and beverages, or buck's fizz if you prefer!

After a safety briefing held by your Skipper, you leave the berth and head for the Solent.

10.30am - In the Solent, ready to watch the first race start of the day which involves the biggest and fastest boats of the regatta.

12.30am - Step ashore in Cowes and head to a restaurant of your choice for lunch, and a chance to explore Cowes at it's very best.

2.30pm - Board the boat and watch the yachts as they cross the finish lines, champagne in hand.

You can then explore the Solent and coastline until heading back to Southampton at 4.30pm, where you can enjoy a relaxing glass or two before heading off.
