The RacesCowes, UK

The Cowes UK event will take place over the first week-end of Lendy Cowes Week 2019 on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 August 2019.

This spectacular race event will take centre stage in the Solent, partnering with the already world-famous week-long regatta in Cowes and promises to deliver amazing racing action to the competitors, fans and visitors. As the home of UK sailing, fans will be out in force, both ashore and afloat, to support the home team, which features some of the best young Olympic talent in the country.

A SailGP Cowes Regatta Village will be set up around the Egypt Point area which will be the focal point for watching the action, with large screens and live commentary, sports presentations featuring the sailing teams, as well as lots of amazing event content and exhibits. The racing will take place just off Egypt Point and a safety exclusion zone will be created on water around which spectators onboard boats can follow the action.

The Solent, the body of water between the Isle of Wight and the south coast of England, is notoriously fickle. Wind conditions come with weather systems off the Atlantic Ocean. The moon pulls tides of several knots in both directions twice a day. And shifting sandbanks make for difficult navigation.

Full details of the event will be issued in due course.
