Cowes Week 2019 Programme of events 10 - 17 August - Royal Ocean Racing Club
Commodore’s introduction
Cowes Week is a unique and special event in the
summer calendar with a wealth of history and tradition.
The regatta also looks forward this year welcoming the
Sail GP Event to Cowes. The 50knt foiling multihulls will
be a spectacular sight after Cowes Week racing on the
first Saturday and Sunday.
There is also a change in timing this year with the Rolex
Fastnet Race before Cowes Week. Both events are
connected by tradition and participants and the planning
allows yachts and crews to be back in Cowes for the
regatta. To compete in both events in today’s world is an
achievement in itself, a challenge some of our members
will rise to!
To start off the club events I look forward to welcoming
members, guests and returning Rolex Fastnet competitors
to the Commodore’s Cocktail Party on Saturday 10th August.
Later in the week we have the Corinthian Ball and Crew
Party. The Terrace Restaurant will once again offer a menu
of quality local food, including the famous seafood platter.
Our staff and volunteers put in a huge amount of hard
work to give us a wonderful week of events and our club
bar and restaurant to enjoy. I would like to thank all
those involved for their contribution.
I hope that you have an enjoyable and
successful regatta.

diary. A peaceful and relaxing contrast to the parties on The Parade and in
the marinas, you and your guests will benefit from the unparalleled view
from the clubhouse terrace.
The menu of sumptuous summery cuisine for every palate will feature daily
specials alongside our fabulous seafood platters, classic light salads, burgers

So, encourage your shore crew to pop in for coffee, or a cocktail and enjoy a

It’s the perfect place to host a crew supper, or dinner with friends.
