Sail on a spectacular tall ship to the Isle of Wight during Cowes Week – the world’s oldest and largest annual sailing regatta. If you are a sailing fan, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

This special voyage visits the Isle of Wight during Cowes Week – the world’s oldest and largest annual sailing regatta. For sailing fans, this is a one-of-a-kind experience. Cowes Week dates back to 1826 and around 8000 competitors participate in the week-long event. It’s a remarkable way to see world-class sailing action, with champion yachtsmen and sailing enthusiasts all taking to the water. We’ll anchor off the coast of Cowes and watch the action unfold.

The races are scheduled to start at 10am each morning and, if you’d rather watch the competitors from a high vantage point on land, head to the area between the Castle of the Royal Yacht Squadron and the cannons. If the races aren’t of interest, you’ll find Osborne close by. This Italian-inspired mansion was once the palatial holiday home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

Our next port of call is Torquay in the English Riviera. Spend time in the harbour, enjoying lunch in one of the restaurants or cafes overlooking the boats. Tick off English-holiday classics such as crazy golf and an open-top bus tour, or visit the 800-year-old Torre Abbey and the Spanish Barn.

Torquay has a choice of sand and shingle shorelines for time on the beach and Oddicombe Beach can be reached on the amazing Babbacombe Cliff Railway. Wander through the famous Pavilion Gardens and hop in the English Riviera Wheel for views over the harbour. We’ll then spend a full day at sea as we skirt the south coast and sail to our final stop in Harwich, Essex.
