Cowes Week names Toe in the Water as charity

The organisers of the popular Isle of Wight sailing regatta Cowes Week have announced the charity that is to benefit from the event.

Toe in the Water, which supports injured servicemen and women, will be partnered with the Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week for the next three years.

It has been chosen as sailing is often used to inspire the patients at Headley Court, the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre, to get back on their feet.

Tanya Brookfield, director of Toe in the Water, stated that it is a "fantastic" opportunity for the charity.

"Cowes Week has always been a really special event for us as its where we first started and the support we've received from competitors and sponsors alike is unrivalled," she was quoted as saying by the Isle of Wight County Press.

The 2011 Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week is set to run from August 6th to 13th and will feature a wide range of sailing races over the course of the event.
