    Background: COWES WEEK, THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE BRITISH YACHTING CALENDAR, IS IN FULL SWING, AND A COMPETITOR TODAY (TUESDAY) WAS PRINCESS ANNE. SHE JOINED HER FATHER, THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH, IN CREWING THE ROYAL YAWL "BLOODHOUND" IN THE BRITANNIA CHALLENGE CUP.

    THE PRINCESS, WHO IS 13, AND HER FATHER ARE STAYING ABOARD THE ROYAL YACHT "BRITANNIA", ANCHORED IN COWES HARBOUR, FOR THE DURATION OF THE WEEK.

    COWES, A PORT STEEPED IN YACHTING TRADITION, IS IN THE ISLE OF WIGHT, JUST OFF SOUTHERN ENGLAND. COMPETITORS FROM FAR AND WIDE COME FOR THE BIG WEEK OF EACH YEAR.

    "BLOODHOUND" HAD STIFF OVERSEAS COMPETITION TODAY, BUT MANAGED TO GET AWAY TO A GOOD START IN POOR YACHTING CONDITIONS. SHE MANAGED TO FIND A BIT OF BREEZE, BUT FINISHED FOURTH -- LEAVING IN HER WAKE A CONVOY OF DECALMED YACHTS.

    AMONG THOSE WHO HAD A PERFECT VIEW OF THE RACING WERE SAILORS FROM TWO DESTROYERS OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC NAVY. THEY ARE UNDERGOING A REFIT AT A COWES SHIPYARD.
