Cowes Week 'creates lively atmosphere on Isle of Wight'

The annual Cowes Week sailing regatta creates a lively atmosphere that those on Isle of Wight holidays can enjoy.

This is according to the Isle of Wight Council, which revealed that the ever-popular event gets underway on August 6th 2011 and runs until the 13th.

"Watch the racing from the shore or take a spectator boat to get close to the action and make sure you don't miss the spectacular fireworks display on the last Friday," it said.

Cowes Week was first held on the island in 1826 and has since gone on to become one of the Isle of Wight's biggest tourist attractions.

The council added that another event well worth attending for those on Isle of Wight holidays next August is taking place on the 20th and 21st.

Attendees of the Isle of Wight Garlic Festival get the chance to sample various foods infused with garlic.

The council also pointed out that the British Powerboat Festival will be held on the Isle of Wight on the August bank holiday weekend.
