Saturday, August 01, 2009 - Saturday, August 08, 2009
at Cowes, Isle of Wight (United Kingdom, British Isles)

Cowes Week is one of the UK's longest running and most successful sporting events and is a key highlight of the British sporting summer.

The regatta has evolved enormously since 1826, and now over 1,000 boats in up to forty different handicap, one-design and multihull classes race every day for eight days. It is this complete mixture of classic and ultra-modern designs that gives the regatta its uniqueness. Several classes that raced more than 50 years ago are still racing today; Dragons, Flying Fifteens, Redwings, Sea View Mermaids, Solent Sunbeams, Swallows, Victories and X-one-designs. New classes such as the Laser SB3s are continually being introduced as they increase in popularity.

Around 8,500 competitors now participate, ranging from Olympic and world class yachtsmen to weekend sailors. The spectacle that the racing provides, together with the vibrant festival atmosphere attracts over 100,000 visitors to Cowes during the event.
