The 2016 Cowes Regatta was as usual a great success. The weekend started on Friday evening when about seventy guests enjoyed a delicious buffet supper hosted once again by the Royal London Yacht Club.
Saturday morning dawned bright and breezy and after a briefing held at Cowes Haven eighteen yachts crossed the start line to battle it out for the Lord Mayor’s Cup. The race was very well run by the Island Sailing Club who were our race organisers for the first time this year. All competitors agreed the course was excellent and with the wind blowing a steady 20-25 knots it made for an exciting, if sometimes testing, race.
The presentation dinner on Saturday evening was also held at the Royal London Yacht Club with approximately a hundred and fifty guests attending.
