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.
Just three days after a devastating fire in West Cowes (Monday 25 January) saw the destruction of over half of the Cowes Etchells fleet, the class has rallied round to source replacement for all members who lost their boats.
Cowes Yacht Haven's event centre will be shaken not stirred on 12 February when All Bets On Pink hosts a charity evening of casino, cabaret and canapés.
