Cowes Week turns 190

This year Cowes Week, the largest sailing regatta of its kind in the world, celebrates its 190th birthday.

Taking place between Saturday 6th and Saturday 13th August, Cowes Week will host around 8,000 competitors racing in everything from very light displacement high-performance yachts to handmade cardboard boats.

As well as watching from either land or water, spectators can enjoy the many pop-up bars and food stands, see the famous fireworks display or even have a go at sailing with UKSA. These Try Sailing sessions allow participants to experience life aboard their J/80 or Colgate yachts while making a donation that helps the sailing charity teach vital life skills to young people.
