SHORE BASED EXPERIENCES
The Cowes SailGP race village will be the best place to watch the racing. The exclusive event site will be located along the seafront starting just beyond the cowes green on queen’s road and running down to egypt point. The race village is a free-to-access public event and there will be something for everyone to enjoy – large screens, live commentary, exhibits, food and bars to suit all tastes.
