Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week, as the event is now known, is a fusion of many exciting elements, with its great mix of competitive sailing and social activities. The 8,500 competitors range from Olympic and world class professionals to weekend sailors.  In excess of 100,000 spectators come to watch the sailing, enjoy the parties and live entertainment, and to experience the unique atmosphere. It is genuinely a one-of-a-kind event – come and see for yourself! 


We will have either Incisor or Venomous available for various days during Cowes Week and you can pick and choose which day or days you would like to race with us.

Whichever you chose you would need to join the boat early in the morning ready for a great days racing. Then after the thrills of a great race day you can then relive all the on water adventures in the Race Village and infamous beer tent.

During the racing you will be given a role on the boat that you can call your own, with those that wish will be able to have a go at helming as well. Cowes week offers some of the most exciting inshore sailing in the world, with courses set early in the morning and taking into account wind, tide and general weather.

There will be no time to cruise around the course but enthisiatic commitment for when we are racing is key to a good result and therefore key to a good night out.
