#11 - Sail by day, party by night at the world’s biggest yachting regatta
Isle Of Wight
AboutCowes Week is a captivating festival, whether you are a sailor watching the wind or a landlubber watching the people. Drop in for a day or the whole week in August to see the seaside town thronging as it becomes the global capital of yachting.
The pretty streets bustle with pop-up shops and entertainers, whilst the Solent hosts world-class races in yachts of all sizes. If you are one of the many visitors who don’t sail, then you can still enjoy the special events, such as children’s activities or visit the Marina where there is music and merriment day and night. Many come along just to spot celebrities who are competing in a race and enjoying the nightlife.
On the last night, turn up early for the fireworks finale which brings the whole town together for a spectacular conclusion to the week.
