Sailing series to come to Isle of Wight

People on Isle of Wight holidays during the upcoming Cowes Week will be able to watch an Extreme Sailing Series event as part of their break.

Celebrities including Ben Fogle and Simon Le Bon took part in a race as part of the programme during the 2009 Cowes Week, while DJ Rob da Bank performed a live set for viewers in the public bar.

Stuart Quarrie, chief executive of Cowes Week Limited, said he is delighted to welcome the event back to the Isle of Wight this summer.

"Last year the racing added hugely to the great spectacle of our regatta," he commented.

"Some of the racing will be held later in the day enabling more Cowes Week sailors to enjoy the spectacle too."

It was recently announced that Mount Gay Rum will be the sponsor of this year's Cowes Week event.

Sailing will take place on the Isle of Wight from July 31st to August 7th as part of the festivities. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19720512-ADNFCR
