Cowes Week Sailing stands alongside Ascot, Henley and Wimbledon as one of the Country's most exclusive sporting events. Cowes Week is the world's largest sailing regatta with over 1000 yachts racing daily. It is without question the most exhilarating spectator event of the year.
Annabel J is licensed for 12 guests. Spend the day watching the exciting world class Cowes Week sailing regatta and cruising the Solent. As well as watching the race starts off the Royal Yacht Squadron, Cowes Week sailing offers a great maritime display including many magnificent tall ships and square riggers. Annabel J's wide decks offer an excellent platform from which to watch the Cowes Week sailing action close-up.
Our skipper is a veteran of over 15 years yacht racing including 12 Cowes weeks and the Fastnet race. He can talk you through the finer points of race tactics as the yachts jostle for position on the start line.
We offer guests a full day’s Gourmet catering and drinks. Meals are served buffet style so as to allow freedom to take in the key moments of Cowes Week itself. Cowes Week is concluded by a flying display and a spectacular fire-work display, probably the largest and loudest seen in Europe.
