COWES RACE WEEK 2023 / 29 JULY **05 AUG 2023 / 8 DAYS / TRAINING & REGATTA **

EVE will be taking place in the famous Cowes week regatta,  where 1000 boats will be racing in the Solent.  The regatta will run between the 29th July 2023 to 5th August 2023. 

Having started in 1826, the event is well known for its technicality as it is based in the area of water between southern England and the Isle of Wight and made tricky by strong double tides. The event is run by Cowes Week Limited in the small town of Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

Your experience onboard Eve will start on the week prior to the regatta around Englands famous water ways, the Solent, to give the crew a chance to familiarise themselves with the area, the boat and to settle into roles before the regatta. During the training days, you learn about safety onboard, race crew roles, practice the basics of sailing including main, mizzen and jib set, tack, gybe, reef, downwind pole, asymmetric and symmetric spinnakers packing, hoisting, trimming and mizzen staysail.

This regatta is open to everyone, including those with no previous experience. We usually have onboard 4 professional sailors to provide you with expert advice and assistance, if required.

The racing in the day is complemented by a great social atmosphere, including live entertainment, back at the Cowes yacht Club after racing, adding to the overall experience.
