Today SailGP have revealed more of their plans for the British stage of the SailGP circuit in Cowes, Isle of Wight. SailGP is set to deliver the greatest stadium racing format – similar to the America’s Cup World Series but designed with the spectator in mind, with more viewer information and matched boats capable of exceeding 50 knots… that’s over 90kmh!
Solent Events are delighted to announce that we have gained Official Charter Supplier status to this amazing event taking place on The Solent.
This announcement comes a week before the series is due to kick off in Sydney – be sure to watch the action live on Youtube…. although you may have to get up a little early as the afternoon’s racing will start at 6am GMT!
The Cowes event will be during the first weekend of Lendy Cowes Week, Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th August 2019 with practice and exhibition sailing taking place on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th. Plans include a race village, open to all and technical area in East Cowes, with the racing taking place to the North of Egypt Point.
As Official Charter Supplier to the SailGP UK event in Cowes we will be providing on the water hospitality packages using a wide selection of Power Boats, Sailing Yachts and Ribs. We’ll also be able to help with VIP shore-side packages in the race village and our VIP area located at the nearby Royal Ocean Racing Club.
