Lendy Cowes Week

4 - 10 August 2018

UK's Biggest Regatta 

Taking place at the start of August every year, Lendy Cowes Week is the UK's biggest and best-known regatta. Across the first week of August, the famous sailing town of Cowes on the Isle of Wight transforms into a bustling hub of activity, with the sailing world descending on the Solent for seven days of high calibre competition. 
Sailors of all abilities are welcome, with more than 40 races taking place daily throughout Lendy Cowes Week, and world-class on shore entertainment every evening. 
 
Sunsail is proud to be the official charter sailing partner of Lendy Cowes Week. This partnership has allowed us to become heavily involved in the event. We're the only charter company to have a dedicated racing class, with the Sunsail Racing Series pitting competitors against one another in a fleet of identical Sunsail Match First 40 yachts. Victory belongs to the crew with the greatest skill and teamwork.
