Ben Ferris, our Marina Manager reports that it has been an extremely busy, exciting and successful week in Cowes Yacht Haven. The Coutts Quarter Ton Cup competitors comprising of 33 boats arrived on Sunday and were then joined by 40 – 45 Swans all vying for top places in the Swan European Regatta. The marina has been a hive of activity all week and resonated an atmosphere of good humoured competition with much fun and high jinx .
This weekend will see the Swans depart and we will be hosting ‘Total’ a Britannia event; the PWC Sunsail event and the IRC Championships. We are also looking forward to welcoming the Panerai Classic Yacht Challenge which always provides fantastic photographic opportunities and an awesome display on our local waters.
Cowes Yacht Haven has purchased a new mobile crane that will safely lift boats weighing up to 15 tons as part of a £300,000 programme of investment.
The organisers of the world famous Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week regatta are seeking a new Sailing Director to replace Stuart Quarrie, who will retire following this year's regatta in August.
