Cowes Week countdown

Are you ready? 

Entry is now open for Cowes Grand Slam entry. The SB20s are moving to Venture Quays for 2015’s Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week, and the Grand Slam offers two races per day (from Saturday, August 8 to Tuesday, August 11) with lots of prizes up for grabs, making it another unmissable event. The leaders will be flying the famous pink kite sponsored by Sportsboat World, with coloured spinnakers also out on the water including a red kite for the first Youth boat, sponsored by Harken, and the Hyde Sails’ Masters leader in black.

Remember the Cowes Grand Slam entry is great value because it includes berthing in Venture Quays (with the option to extend that for the full week), entry to the socials and the opportunity to win the special Grand Slam prizes. You’ll need to complete a Cowes Week entry for the first four days to take part in the Grand Slam. You can also enter to take part in the White Group fleet races from Wednesday August 12-Saturday 15, which will be one race a day (you could just enter for the Cowes Week races, but frankly we think you’d be mad to miss out on the class’s own Grand Slam, and discounted mooring deal!).

Don’t forget to pack your glad rags for the hugely popular Royal Yacht Squadron cocktail party – for gentlemen that means jacket and tie, they WILL check, and getting turned away from the Squadron is rather tedious – and there’ll be some great socials, generously supported by Sportsboat World, Tony Castro and White Formula. See you there!
