Dating back to 1826, Cowes Week is one of the longest running and most successful UK sporting events, and today sits alongside Wimbledon and Henley as a must-attend summer event. With up to 1000 boats taking part and 100,000 spectators, Cowes Week offers an unrivalled atmosphere both on the water and ashore, and a unique corporate hospitality experience.
With Britannia you and your guests will enjoy a carefully created hospitality package, designed to suit your exact requirement. You can choose from enjoying a day on board a premium sailing yacht, a high-speed RIB or a luxurious powerboat - each of which provide a different way to watch the exciting racing action from your private vantage point.
In addition, all hospitality packages includes access to our VIP Hospitality Lounge, in the heart of Cowes Race Village, and you can chose from a lunch ashore or a sumptuous buffet lunch on board.
If you prefer, you can actually take part in the racing! See our Cowes Week racing packages.
Since 2006, the Tuesday of Cowes Week has been our unique take on a Ladies Day as seen at other British Summer Season events. The day celebrates the contribution and achievement of women in sailing and recognizes some of the major successes of women in the sport. This year, the prestigious day will take place on Tuesday 13th August.
Lendy Cowes Week sees many mixed crews, as well as female only crews, and all ladies out racing are encouraged to wear their seafaring navy-and-white stripes. While there are many women out racing, it is less common for ladies to take the helm, so on Lendy Ladies Day, ladies are especially encouraged. Why not join in and get your family, friends and collgues on the water for a fabulous day out.
Britannia Corporate Events hosts an exclusive ladies day package where both sailors and non sailors can get out on the water to spectate the racing then join us in our waterside VIP area for a delicious 2 course luncheon. Come and join us for a day with the girls, meet our lifestyle partners including Ultrasun, Helly Hansen and Salcombe Gin and enjoy a fantastic day out.
It is important that your sailing day suits your objectives, so once you make contact with Britannia, one of our event managers will work with you to ensure that your choice of yacht, the itinerary and format perfectly capture your objectives.
Whilst the emphasis of the day is fun at a leisurely pace, Britannia takes safety very seriously and your day will start with a thorough boat familiarisation from your professional skipper, so you can feel confident and relaxed during your day.
Unlike most other corporate hospitality events, you have the option to provide more than just branded clothing to your guests - you can even have your company logo applied to your yacht, ensuring your brand presence to your guests, Cowes Week spectators and in photos taken on the day.
Your event manager can provide you with more information about all optional extras to tailor make your day.
