Author: Jo Bowden   Date: 15:29 Monday 13 May 2024

With an early start to the race this year, we knew the shoreside aspect would be hugely important to making this weekend a highlight of your summer!

The Race Team and Island Sailing Club (ISC) are therefore extremely pleased to announce that we will be staging an Official Hospitality Venue, located on The Parade in Cowes and near to the ISC.

All competitors, race supporters and spectators are welcome, and it will be open throughout the race weekend (from 14:00 on Friday 14 June to Sunday 16 June afternoon).

The new venue will feature:

  • Large CREW BAR Marquee serving all your favourite drinks
  • Delicious food and snacks for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner
  • Live music on stage all three days
  • B&G Race Support Event Truck
  • Helly Hansen and RNLI stands
  • The Mermaid Garden
  • ISC Members' Bar and VIP Terrace
  • Crew Deli at Blind Tiger
  • Crew Suppers at Blind Tiger

We will also be holding the Race Briefing (Friday 14 June 18:00) and Prize Giving (Sunday 16 June 12:00) on the stage on The Parade, weather permitting (or in the Crew Bar Marquee).
