Cowes Week Sailing Regatta

Cowes Week has played a key part in the British sporting summer calendar and is one of the United Kingdom’s longest running and most successful sporting event since 1836. Known as the largest sailing regatta of its kind in the world it now stages up to 40 daily races for around 1,000 boats .

The event offers a great mix of social activities and competitive sailing. About 8,500 participants are joining the event each year and range from Olympic and world class professionals to weekend sailors. In excess of 100,000 spectators come to watch the sailing, enjoy the parties and live entertainment, and to experience the unique British atmosphere. It is genuinely a one-of-a-kind event.

Although the regatta is over 180 years old, it is only in recent times that the Week has become an integrated series of races organized by a single body.

In November 2007, Cowes Week Limited (totally owned by CCC) was formed to provide a single management board for the event with overall responsibility for policy decisions and determining strategic direction.

Cowes Week in these days, offers grate sponsorship opportunities, networking circles and one of the biggest exposure in the construction industry area. As a result, you could choose from advertising on Cowes Live or in the Racing Guide, branding throughout Cowes, Red Arrows or even sponsoring one of the boats.

In addition, if you wish to join and apply before the end of December 2016 you will benefit from the Super-Early discount and automatically be entered into the Super Early Bird Prize Draw!
