Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week line-up revealed

Tourists getting ready to go on their Isle of Wight holidays for Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week this month have a range of activities to look forward to at the sailing regatta.

One of the highlights of the itinerary for the event is set to be the Toe in the Water curry night, which is being hosted for sailors travelling to the island to compete.

It is being held at Shepards Wharf Marina on August 10th and a special beer has been brewed and will be unveiled on the night.

Island Ales came up with the Toe in the Water ale in order to mark the occasion and those who attend can also look forward to tasting food prepared by chefs from the Queen's Own Gurkha Logistics Regiment.

Military pipers will be providing the entertainment throughout the evening, so it is sure to be one to remember for those who buy tickets for the event.

Those who love their films and are key to try a new experience can try out the world's first ever sail-in cinema next Friday (August 12th).

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, the epic movie starring Russell Crowe, has been selected by Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week competitors and fans of Cowes Week on Facebook to be screened on the night, with a giant screen transported to Cowes Esplanade for the event.

Another highlight of the week is likely to be the ever-popular fireworks display that rounds off Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week each year on the final Friday night of the regatta (August 12th).

Tens of thousands of people will be expected to enjoy the display, which lights up the skies above the Solent to provide a memorable end to Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week for all the family.

This year could be set to break records for the number of entrants travelling to the Isle of Wight, as early indications showed more boats than ever had been registered to compete.
