Cowes is the yachting centre of not only The Island, but also arguably the world. It is most famous for Cowes Week, which usually takes place in the early part of August.
A visit to Cowes is a must, not only to appreciate the colours of all the spinnakers of the competing yachts, but also to take in the electric atmosphere of the evening, crewmembers relaxing and discussing the day’s events and how they faired. There is a good range of pubs and reputedly, Cowes has more per square mile than any other town in the UK.
Cowes has narrow streets and a wealth of chandleries, unique shops and eating venues, which cater for every need. The sea is never far away, and a walk through a narrow alley will take you to the marina, where you can stand and admire the cruisers and yachts which help to make Cowes what it is.
