Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week
6th – 13th August 2016
Sunsail is proud to be the Official Charter Sailing Partner of Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week 2016.
AAM Cowes week is the UK’s biggest regatta on the sailing calendar and takes place at the beginning of August every year. It’s set in the usually sleepy town of Cowes on the Isle of Wight, right on the water’s edge, which transforms into a lively hub of activity with a festival-like atmosphere, welcoming thousands of boats to take part in hundreds of races on the waters of The Solent throughout the week. Ever since the first race was held in 1826, the event has attracted sailors of all levels from enthusiastic weekend sailors to more recently, Olympic medal winners. With up to 40 daily races, the Solent is the place to be for anyone looking for great sailing and a fabulous time. The action doesn’t end once the sun sets either, Cowes Week wouldn’t be the same without the legendary ‘après sail’, you’re sure to find something that suits you with live music and bars and a range of daily entertainment shore side.
As the Official Charter Sailing Partner of Aberdeen Asset Management, we are very involved with all the activities going on during the week and can boast the only offering of perfectly matched racing with our 25 identical Sunsail Match First 40 yachts; we are also the only charter company to have their own dedicated racing class. This means the racing is second-to-none as the winning comes down to the skill and teamwork of those on board.
Our Inclusive Packages
All levels of sailors are catered for, so whether you’re an absolute beginner or a salty seadog, you’ll be able to join us on the start line. Sunsail’s midday race start times allow all crews the chance to practice in the morning, before racing in the afternoon. Choose from bareboat or skippered packages, for the week or just for the day. Join us after racing on our exclusive prize giving balcony, right in the heart of the action, to congratulate the winners and start off the après sail on a real high. Use your skills, feel the excitement, and race with Sunsail in 2016.
