Cowes Week

15,000+ people, most of them participants.  

The world's best-known regatta afloat and ashore…

JULY 29 - AUGUST 5 2017

-An ancient Arabian proverb


He who gazes long at the sea, is already a sailor.



Cowes Week is one of the UK’s longest running and most successful sporting events. It stages up to 40 daily races for around 1,000 boats and is the largest sailing regatta of its kind in the world.  

The event offers a great mix of competitive sailing and social activities. The 8,500 competitors range from Olympic and world class professionals to weekend sailors. Corporate high flyers to plumbers. Over a100,000 spectators come to watch the sailing, enjoy the parties and live entertainment, and to experience the unique atmosphere.

Racing takes place in the sheltered waters of the Solent, between the mainland and the Isle of Wight. The strong tides and the changeable weather make for challenging sailing conditions and ensure competitive racing.

There are few regattas in the world that can compare with Cowes Week.

We are offering our yacht Fireball a Beneteau 40.7 for charter by the day. Monday - Friday & the first weekend to individuals on a by the day basis.

Yes we are cheaper than the competition with identical or similar yachts.

Why? We are a small business with less overheads and we love what we do.

The yacht is maintained to high standards with a continuous sail replacement policy. At least 1 new sail every year.

This year so far  we have a new North #1 Genoa.

Get your TEAM of 8 and we will coach and guide you as required. We are here to keep you safe but you are in control, your race your tactics. Use us as you need us, race as hard as you like or just enjoy it by taking part.

Accommodation is onboard and yes sleeping on a yacht is like comfortable camping and a tad crowded but we kind of guess your here to race and party. 1 or 2 nights wont kill you.

We can organise accommodation ashore at extra cost. Please note local hotels are likely to book up well in advance .

All safety equipment is provided including free loan of nearly new  Musto Foul Weather gear.

We have catering options available while on the water. All main meals are not included and purchased ashore.
