  • Description

    Hundreds of yachts from around the world have been gathering at the Isle of Wight on Britain's South Coast for the start of the annual Cowes Week competitions.

    SYNOPSIS: It's the small boat divisions which have the impressive numbers at Cowes this Year. But there are also a large number of the much bigger ocean racers to take part in the five off-shore races during the week. There is a total entry for the off-shore classes of 267 boats with another 291 yachts expected to compete in the day boat classes.

    Although it is the smaller day-boats that provide the entertaining sailing of Cowes Week, it is the off-shore fleets that supply the major competitions. There is a strong entry from West Germany this
    year with yachts like Saudade, Duva and Swantewit in the cruiser class. There is also a strong international entry in the opening race of the week - the Queen's Cup on Saturday (31 July).
