Cowes week, the largest regatta of its type in the world, c. Paul Wyeth

Since 1826, Lendy Cowes Week has been an essential entry in the English summer calendar, alongside Wimbledon and the Henley Regatta.

Of its type, the largest sailing regatta in the world and one of Britain’s longest running sporting events, each day as many as 800 boats, with yachtsman ranging from Olympians to the weekend sailor, will compete in 40 races throughout Cowes week.

More than 100,000 spectators are expected to descend upon the small town of Cowes on the north of the Isle of Wight for the festival, and you can be assured that the party will carry well on into the night with live music, DJs and an excess of Pimms flowing, in that unique Cowes ambience.

When is the Lendy Cowes Week 2019

The 2019 Week will be from 10 to 17 October.
