Cowes Week 2012 deemed a success

Those behind this year's Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week sailing regatta have stated the event was a success.

Chief executive of the regatta Stuart Quarrie stated there was a wide range of challenging racing over the course of the week as a result of variation in the weather around the Isle of Wight.

"The southerly winds we saw for much of the week made it more complicated in the shifty conditions for both the sailors and for the course-setters," he said, noting the latter were forced to set beats and runs across the tide.

Chief executive officer of Aberdeen Asset Management Martin Gilbert stated everyone at the title sponsor of the event enjoyed another regatta, adding it "caught the tide of excitement, inclusivity and sporting endeavour" fostered around the UK by the recent London 2012 Olympics.

Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week is one of the biggest events on the Isle of Wight's annual calendar, with tens of thousands of people travelling to the island for the sailing action.
