Isle of Wight is 'spectacular'

The Isle of Wight has been described as "spectacular" and having a "buzzing excited energy".

According to a report by City AM, this is "contagious" and has everyone "dancing, drinking and thoroughly enjoying themselves".

It was reporting on a promotional event run off the coast of the Isle of Wight by car manufacturer Lexus called the Ultimate Yacht Experience, which saw the firm whisk participants off to Southampton Marina in a chauffeur driven Lexus RX450h.

"Fun and festivities filled the air with live music blasting out as spectators swayed along, enjoying the stalls and drinks tents," noted the report, which added these took the form of double decker Pimms buses and Hawaiian saloons.

The Isle of Wight is one of the top places in the UK for sailing and every summer it hosts the Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week regatta, which attracts tens of thousands of people to the island.

It also plays host to the JP Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race each year.
