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.
The latest meetings of the Cowes Yacht Haven Board and Cowes Town Waterfront Trust welcomed the appointment of John Dudley as chairman of the Cowes Yacht Haven Board ahead of a busy season at the marina.
After three days of rest and recuperation in the peaceful seaside town of Cowes on the Isle of Wight, on Sunday the prestigious Solitaire Bompard Le Figaro solo yacht race set sail for France.
