Cowes week spectating: This trip is suitable for novices and is an opportunity to sample the 'Cowes Week' experience, when hundreds of yachts descend on Cowes for the famous 'Cowes Week' regatta. We will not be taking part in the racing, but we will sail in The Solent to view the racing action close-up, then berth in Cowes overnight to soak up the atmosphere. In total there will be 4 guests on-board, plus the skipper. Itinerary: The day will start with a safety briefing before sailing from Lymington. We expect to arrive at Cowes around 12.00, when the Cowes Week racing will have started. Here we will sail amongst the various race classes to see the racing close-up, before berthing in Cowes. A simple lunch will be provided on-board while we are sailing, then dinner on-board in Cowes. Optionally, you may prefer to make your own arrangements to eat out in the evening at Cowes. Either way, you will have ample opportunity to experience the Cowes atmosphere ashore. Sleep on-board overnight, then breakfast in the morning, before sailing from Cowes at 09.30 for the sail back to Lymington.
