About the event

NWYC has individual crew places for Cowes Week 2018.

Cowes Week is one of the largest yachting regattas in the world, it’s been running since 1826 and now attracts over 1000 yachts and up to 8000 racers from all over the world. Racing takes place on the Solent, a challenging stretch of water between the Isle of Wight and the ‘North Island’ as the locals call the mainland. Running over 8 days this regatta is full on with some fantastic après sail activities culminating in the famous Cowes Week Fireworks on the last Friday.


Our campaign is based out of Cowes on the Isle of Wight. There is usually one race per day lasting around 4 to 6 hours and most racing utilises the many laid race marks around the Solent itself.


Practice day – 3rd August

Regatta starts – 4th August
