Charter a Yacht for Cowes Week

The UK's largest & most prestigious sailing regatta

Taking place in 2024 from 27 July – 2 August, Cowes Week is one of the UK's biggest and longest-running regattas in the world, offering seven days of high calibre competition. With all sailing abilities welcome and more than 40 races taking place daily throughout Cowes Week, it’s a great time to take your passion for sailing to another level.

Prometheus Sailing and Sunsail UK is the only charter company to have a dedicated racing class, pitting competitors against one another in a fleet of identical Sunsail 41.0 yachts. Victory belongs to the crew with the greatest skill and teamwork.

We offer an exclusive and dedicated hospitality area in the heart of Cowes for our Cowes Week clients, providing the perfect area to meet your crew mates and professional crew at the start of the day and for our daily après-sail drinks and prize giving.

As a new enhancement for 2024, we are delighted to announce that our VIP hospitality area for our daily après sail drinks and prize giving will be hosted at the exclusive, private members sailing club - the Island Sailing Club (ISC). The ISC is ideally situated in the heart of Cowes, in close proximity to Cowes Yacht Haven and the Red Jet ferry service in West Cowes. 

We are also delighted to announce that Prometheus Sailing has been appointed as the Official Charter Supplier for Cowes Week 2024.

Our inclusive packages 

Choose from bareboat or skippered packages for the week or just for the day. With our late morning race start times, crews will get the chance to practice in the morning before racing in the afternoon. Afterwards, congratulate the winners at our exclusive prize-giving area and get the post-race party started early. Put your skills to the test with Sunsail and enjoy the superb racing conditions of England's famous Solent.
