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.
A beautiful Ketch Aurique, Le Bora-Bora, manned by eight teenagers who have just recovered from serious diseases, has berthed at Cowes Yacht Haven on her way from Cherbourg to Dartmouth. Eight more will come aboard in August for a trip on the Mediterranean Sea.
