Performance Yacht Racing has individual crew places and whole boat charters for Cowes Week 2019. Choose to race with us in either the IRC Racing or ISCRS Cruising Classes.
Cowes Week is one of the largest yachting regattas in the world, it’s been running since 1826 and now attracts over 1000 yachts and up to 8000 racers from all over the world. Racing takes place on the Solent, a challenging stretch of water between the Isle of Wight and the ‘North Island’ as the locals call the mainland. We offer individual crew places and whole boat charters for racing both with and without spinnakers. Indeed the cruising classes are very popular with those individuals who are new to racing or those looking to take a calmer approach to racing. Running over 7 days, this regatta is full on with some fantastic après sail activities culminating in the famous Cowes Week Fireworks on the last Friday.
Our Cowes Week campaign is based out of Cowes Yacht Haven in Cowes on the Isle of Wight. There is usually one race per day lasting around 4 to 6 hours and most racing utilises the many laid race marks around the Solent itself.
