Isle of Wight Sailing

Sailing is a major part of island life for many residents and visitors. With global annual events such as 'Cowes Week' and the 'Round the Island Yacht Race', (along with other organised events,) the Isle of Wight is a well-known sailing haven.

The Solent (the strip of water between the Isle of Wight and the mainland) provides wonderful sailing conditions. Pop over to Yarmouth, Cowes or Bembridge harbours. Not a boat owner? How about chartering a boat? Up the river without a paddle? No problem... the island has chandlers and sailing shops. Find Isle of Wight accommodation for Cowes Week too.
