SailGP at Cowes
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. It has been held in early August every year since 1826, except during the two world wars.
In 2019 Sail GP will take centre stage in the Solent, partnering with the already world-famous Lendy Cowes Week, and promises to deliver amazing racing action to the competitors, fans and visitors.
SailGP is sailing redefined. Established in 2018 and headquartered in London and San Francisco, SailGP is an annual, global sports league featuring bold, cutting-edge technology and awe-inspiring athleticism.
You and your guests will enjoy all the action from the luxury of a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 49i yacht. The yacht will take just 10 guests for the day and you may book for two guests upwards.
On board there will be a bar serving beers, wines and soft drinks and we will call in at The George Hotel in Yarmouth for a relaxed lunch.
You can even take a turn at crewing the boat if you wish, or just sit back relax and let others take the strain. The choice is yours.
