Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week


Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week 2015


Sunsail Partners Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week
We’re very excited to announce that Sunsail has been named the official charter sailing partner of the 2015 and 2016 Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week.
Commenting on the announcement Simon Cross, President of TUI Marine and Sunsail, said: “Cowes Week and Sunsail are both part of the domestic and international sailing communities’ heritage and this new partnership seems entirely natural. We will be working closely with the regatta to make sailing with Sunsail even more accessible, both in the UK and at our many overseas locations. We look forward to working with the regatta organisers, its participants, its spectators and fans around the world.”
Michelle Warner, Sales and Marketing Director at CWL, added: “Sunsail has been an important part of our regatta for many years and we’re delighted to cement this successful relationship by extending it in this way. Many people have been introduced to our great sport through Sunsail sailing days and we look forward to introducing even more people to sailing and our event through this new relationship. One of the specific initiatives we’re looking forward to developing in partnership with Sunsail and the TUI group of companies is a package that makes entering the event for overseas visitors even easier”.
What is Cowes Week?
Ever since the first race was held in 1826, Cowes Week has been the highlight of the summer sporting calendar, attracting sailors of all levels from Olympic medal winners to enthusiastic weekend sailors. With up to 40 daily races and around 1,000 boats taking part, the Solent will be the place to be for anyone looking for great sport and an amazing atmosphere.
If you’re just looking to spectate, there’s plenty going on shoreside: Cowes events in the past have included RIB rides, aerial displays and sailing taster sessions, as well as spectator boats that can take you out into the heart of the action. The action doesn’t end once the sun sets either – the unbeatable final-night fireworks display always draws the crowds to Cowes, Southampton and the Solent on-board the special Fireworks Cruise.
Sunsail Racing
Sunsail yachts are used in sailing events of all kinds including the Heineken Regatta and Antigua Sailing Week, but we’re particularly proud to be involved with this first-class sailing event so close to our UK base at Port Solent. We’re already getting ready for an ultimate week of Cowes Week sailing, and we’re excited to get even more involved in one of the world’s biggest and most historical regattas.
Want to get racing? Our Match First 40 yachts are the only perfectly matched fleet in the UK and the only charter fleet that races in their own class during Cowes Week – creating an even playing field where everything depends on the expertise of your crew. Use your skills, feel the excitement, and race with Sunsail in 2015.
