Cowes Week began in 1826 with just seven yachts competing a Gold Cup which held the value of £100. Since then Cowes week has evolved year-on-year. Competitors range from Olympians to weekend sailors and more than 100,000 spectators who come to watch the action on the water. Clipper Events offers racers, cruisers and spectators the option of chartering one or more of our fleet. This includes twelve Clipper 70s the new yachts built and ready to compete in the 13-14 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race and Ten Clipper 68s, the current Clipper Round the World Yacht Race fleet.
Get active on the water or soak up the atmosphere from the sidelines with a whole boat charter, or an individual booking.
Clipper Events will take care of all your requirements from yacht charter to boat branding and team clothing, catering, berthing and race entry.
Clipper Events also offer options for spectators who wish to get out on the water but leave the hard work to others while they soak up the atmosphere of Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week and enjoy the spectacular racing from the vantage pointo of a luxury motor launch.
If you cannot commit to a whole day why not take an evening cruise to enjoy the spectacular Friday night firework display on 9 August 2013. The Cowes display is a spectacular affair and usually lasts about half an hour, during which time they light the blue touch paper on approximately six tonnes of fireworks.

We all had a great week and more importantly so did our clients! Every aspect of the event from the organisation, to the boats, to the kit was spot on.
However, what really made the event was the crew. They really did make the days on the boat great, letting our guests get involved to a level at which they felt comfortable, encouraging us to win and illustrating, to the more experienced sailors that we had onboard, the finer points of the sport. I hope we get the opportunity to work with you in the future.

Just a quick note to say thank you for the superb charters during Cowes Week. Every little detail was looked into. I can't stress enough how good you are to work with.
The crews were great and all our customers came back on such a high. It made other guests (that had opted for our land-based package) very envious and they wished they had gone sailing. So a very big thank you all round.
