Prince Philip's Bluebottle to be shown on Isle of Wight

The Bluebottle boat owned by Prince Philip is to go on display on the Isle of Wight next month as part of the sailing regatta Cowes Week.

He has offered to allow the vessel to be transported to the Isle of Wight for the duration of Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week 2011 and it will be on show at Cowes Yacht Haven Regatta Village.

In order to mark the occasion, as well as the 90th birthday of the Duke of Edinburgh, which passed earlier in the year, a special dinner is to be hosted during Cowes Week.

Royal Corinthian Yacht Club will hold the event on August 7th, with all International Dragon sailors invited to attend.

Excitement is likely to be building among tourists preparing for their Isle of Wight holidays for Cowes Week, which is set to get started on August 6th and include showpieces such as parties at Shepards Wharf Marina.
