Cowes Week to host Artemis Challenge

The Artemis Challenge will take place on the Isle of Wight again this summer as part of the Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week.

Organisers behind the world's largest sailing regatta confirmed the race will once more be held on the island during the event, which takes place from August 6th to 13th.

The Artemis Challenge is one of the key events of Cowes Week, as the racing action takes place close enough to the shores for attendees to watch.

Further entrants will be announced over the course of the next month, but five IMOCA 60s have already been confirmed as taking part.

France's top sailors including Armel Le Cleac'h, Vincent Riou and Bernard Stamm will all be travelling to the Isle of Wight in order to compete in the Artemis Challenge.

This year, a Ladies Day will be held during the Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week on August 9th.
