Cowes is the mecca for UK sailing, home to the oldest and largest sailing regatta in the world, and The Royal Yacht Squadron, with its rich history since 1815.

Cowes attracts thousands of visitors and sailing spectators annually for events and regattas to include Cowes Week and The Panerai Cup classic yacht racing.


Cowes is located on the west bank of the estuary of the River Medina, facing the smaller town of East Cowes on the east bank.

The town of East Cowes has a small shopping centre, a seafront promenade, and a marina. It is the location of Queen Victoria’s famous summer home, Osborne House.
