Isle of Wight Sailing
With year round world class sailing events the Isle of Wight has become a U.K’s center of sailing and yachting. With such a strong influence on the island its not surprising that sailing has become a favourite pastime for visitors and islanders alike.
The Isle of Wight plays host to some of Britain’s most prestigious events such as the Round the Island Race, Cowes Week, Cowes Classic Week and the Rolex Fastnet Race. In fact the island hosts over 250 sailing regattas every year attracting 300,000 visitors that spend £50 million.
If you want to join in the fun during your visit there are plenty of companies offering equipment-hire, if you don't fancy getting wet you can enjoy refreshments in the many perfectly placed bars and restaurants.
