Zara Phillips beaten in Cowes Week race

Zara Phillips is on the Isle of Wight for the Cowes Week set of sailing events - but she tasted defeat in a race against British yachtsman Mike Golding.

The daughter of Princess Anne was joined by Winter Olympic gold medallist Amy Williams on the Artemis Ocean Racing boat, which was helmed by double Olympic medallist Simon Hiscocks.

But Phillips' crew was beaten into third place, with Golding's team taking the top spot and a first prize of a £10,000 donation to the RNLI.

After the race, Ms Phillips said: "It was a really good atmosphere on board, we had a good team and we all worked really well together, it was easy for us as the crew know the boat so well."

Williams added that the event had acted as a great workout for the upper body.

Cowes Week is ongoing until August 7th 2010, when Isle of Wight-based band The Bluebyrds bring the event to a close with a live show.
