Cowes Week 2017

Every August Cowes Week attracts around 1,000 yachts, 8000 competitors and over 100,000 spectators, making Cowes Week the largest sailing regatta in Europe and one of the largest annual sporting events in the UK. This year the regatta will start on 29th July to 5th August.

Cowes week is on a par with Wimbledon and Henley Regatta for corporate hospitality opportunities, the difference being - YOU CAN TAKE PART even with no previous sailing experience! We provide two professional crew that will show your team the ropes and help you get the most out of your day.

You don’t need any sailing experience to get involved, making Cowes Week a great platform for a Client Hospitality day, it also provides your company the opportunity to showcase your brand to 1000s of people in a single day.

Whether you are looking for a leisurely day watching the action from one of our yachts, high-speed RIBs or powerboats or whether you are after a more active option actually taking part in the racing, Britannia can provide everything to enable your team to get involved.

Racing or Spectating Packages

Britannia's racing packages allow you and your team to compete in the racing - alongside other corporate teams, professional sailors and groups of families and friends. 

Your race package includes experienced professional sailing crew onboard, who will provide safety and coaching guidance to ensure you get the very best out of your day.

A spectating day is the more relaxed option, you still get to spend the day on the water but watch the action rather than competing. You and your team will also come ashore for a VIP lunch in Cowes before a relaxing sail home.

Choose from one of our comfortable cruising yachts or an exhilarating high-speed RIB, sit back and relax in style!

Situated right in the heart of Cowes Yacht Haven, you can relax with an apres-sail drink, soak up the Cowes Week party atmosphere, re-charge your phone, catch up on important emails and even enjoy a delicious range of snacks and delicious nightly BBQ.
