Since 1826, Lendy Cowes week has become one of the most famous sporting events in history, mixing tradition with state of the art world class regattas. Held over 8 days every August, Cowes transforms under the media spotlight as the social event of the year with around 150,000 visitors. Boasting at least 35 races each day the week provides spectacular off shore racing and viewing, live entertainment and a world class 150 year old fireworks display.
Cowes Parade is the most popular venue during the week, with fantastic views of the Solent, it offers perfect viewing for all regattas. Throughout the week Cowes Parade provides live entertainment every day and evening, a food court with award winning chefs, big named retailers and of course, the famous Spinnaker Bar.
