Princess Anne to visit Isle of Wight

Princess Anne is to travel to the Isle of Wight next month in order to see young sailors in action during one of the events being held during the Cowes Week sailing regatta.

The president of the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) will be watching the Isle of Wight OnBoard Festival, which is being held on August 10th.

Victoria Lenz, the RYA sailing development officer who helped to launch the event, stated she is delighted the royal will be heading to the Isle of Wight to watch it.

"Sailing is a fantastic sport for kids as it gives them the opportunity to develop teamwork and coordination skills, as well as having a great time with their friends," she said.

Representatives of the Island Youth Water Activity Centre and Brading Haven Yacht Club are to be among those taking part.

Princess Anne will be the latest royal to visit the Isle of Wight, after Prince Edward checked out the facilities used to host the Island Games recently.
