Cowes SailGP has formed an exciting partnership with Cowes Week and will be an official feature event for their opening weekend of 10 and 11 August 2019.
Brand new for 2019, this annual globe sports championship promises to deliver thrilling racing for fans and competitors alike as it takes centre stage in the Solent. As Cowes is the home of UK sailing, the event is sure to be packed with fans out in force, both ashore and afloat, to support the home team which features some of the best young Olympic talent in the country.
The focal point for watching the action will be the Cowes SailGP Race Village which will run along the seafront from the end of Cowes Green up to Egypt Point. There will be giant screens, live commentary, food and drinks, sports presentations featuring the sailing teams, plus lots of amazing event content and exhibits.
The racing itself will take place off Egypt Point with a safety exclusion zone on the water, around which spectators afloat can watch the action.
