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.

 

Sunsail launches the Lendy Jetts sailing initiative for women at Lendy Cowes Week

 

Sunsail has partnered Lendy Cowes Week, the world's largest regatta and a highlight of the British Summer Season, to launch a fantastic new sailing initiative for female sailors wanting to experience sailing, the Lendy Jetts. The Lendy Jetts celebrates the 100th anniversary of the women’s vote in the UK and the Suffragette movement.

The Lendy Jetts will be an all female team racing on-board a Sunsail Match First 40 yacht during Lendy Cowes Week 2018. The initiative will see over 100 women sailing during the week, with the team welcoming both novice and experienced sailors alike. The Lendy Jetts will be expertly guided through an exciting itinerary of training and racing by female professional skippers and first mates, including a previous Lendy Ladies Day nominee Karen Rawson and former Army Major and Fastnet veteran Lucinda Allaway. 

The itinerary will also include plenty of opportunity for participants to network with fellow sailors in the Sunsail VIP hospitality area in the heart of Cowes Yacht Haven.

Participation in the Sunsail Lendy Jetts is open to individuals wanting to race for a day or more, or for businesses, or groups of women, wanting to charter the entire yacht to create their own Lendy Jetts race team.
