Festival of the Sea on the Isle of Wight

The Festival of the Sea is set to take place next month and could prove a fantastic attraction for Isle of Wight visitors.

Running from September 14th to 22nd, the event will take place across the whole of island and is set to include a jam-packed programme of activities for revellers.

Celebrating the unique maritime history of the Isle of Wight, the Festival of the Sea is an annual showcase of some of the best activities to be found on the island, with guests being treated to sailing lessons, boat charters, fishing, art displays, lessons in cooking the day's catch and much more.

Live music is set to feature heavily in 2013, with The Sea Shanty at the Spyglass Inn Ventnor set to be a stand-out attraction visitors will not want to miss.

Other high-profile events that will be taking pride of place on the Festival of the Sea calendar this year include the Red Funnel Food Show in Cowes, the Beach Arts Festival in Fishbourne and a new addition for 2013 in the form of a competitive Fishing festival.

Many of the activities are completely free to head along and the festival promises to offer something for everyone, be they families, couples of individuals on an Isle of Wight break.

Visitors can enjoy a wonderful display of kite flying on one of the days - a perfect event to take the kids along to - as well as an organised cycle ride around the island that will culminate in fish and chips on the beach.

Sailing, swimming, surfing and jet skiing are also likely to be great attractions for those keen to get a bit damp during a visit to the island.

All in all, festivalgoers this year will be spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding what activities to take part in next, with the island's wonderful heritage and lively atmosphere being showcased to the full.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801625144-ADNFCR
