Marine Events
We hired 3 yachts from Marine Events for a day’s sailing with our clients. Steve’s professional and flexible approach from the outset meant our every need was satisfied, he ensured that we were educated, entertained and extremely well catered for. We’d do it again...

Cowes Week is now considered to be the largest, oldest and most successful sailing regatta in the world. It is a week-long celebration of yachting based from the Isle of Wight town of Cowes. Everything from small yachts with 2 0r 3 crew through to ocean racing yachts with crews of up to 20 will be there racing on the Solent. It is the south coast’s “be seen” event of the year, with a shore based carnival atmosphere to rival any.

Cowes Week Hospitality

Marine Events makes sure that your Cowes Week experience is one that you and your guests will never forget,  our events are hosted on board some of the largest, most luxurious sailing yachts and powerboats available for charter; we take you close to the racing action; we show you the sights and we make sure your time on the Solent lacks nothing.

We provide superb catering, from the moment you walk on to the boats, with Champagne and Smoked Salmon on arrival, three course seafood buffet lunches, afternoon clotted cream teas and all accompanied by fine wines, chilled beers and seasonal fruity Pimms, all served by our  experienced friendly hostess’s.

We makes sure that we get you out on the water and up close to the racing action so that you can experience first hand the excitement of watching a fleet of racing yachts rounding a mark, dropping sails (sometimes in the water) hoisting spinnakers, winching, grinding, all this mixed in with a lot of shouting!

However, Cowes Week hospitality isn’t always all about the racing, it’s about networking with clients, maybe socialising with work colleagues, but it is definitely about relaxing and having fun, so once we have seen enough racing, we often cruise somewhere quite and have some fun of our own!

Or of course you can simply sit back, relax and enjoy the fine wines, chilled Champagnes or Ice Cold Beers while settling into the Solent’s pace of life!

Marine Events offer Cowes Week hospitality packages throughout the week on one of the most luxurious fleets of yachts and powerboats available for charter, whether you choose sail, power or a combination of them both, we have a package that will suite you and your budget

Extended Cowes Week hospitality packages can be arranged with evening meals included on board or ashore; allowing you to watch the Friday night fireworks, or just to spend an evening experiencing some of the land based entertainment.


Example hospitality day arranged for: Sportsworld PLC (their Client, Google UK)

Guests arrive at Royal Southern Yacht Club for continental Breakfast. The skipper and host are introduced; the plan for the day and safety are covered in a briefing by Marine Events.

Board the yacht which is moored on the pontoon in front of the club. There are two matched Jeanneau 49 luxury cruising yachts. The morning is all about relaxing, learning about the yacht and getting close to all the racing action.

Lunch will be served on board in one of the sheltered bays. A two-course summer buffet lunch will be served by the host and skipper with chilled white wine, beer and soft drinks (Standard Marine Events drinks package)

After lunch, more time for some action packed sailing, during which each guest will get the chance to get as involved as they wish with some helming, sailing, trimming or maybe some wine sampling!

Afternoon tea and cakes served will be served at the yacht club overlooking the beautiful River Hamble.

In this example Sportsworld chose not to view the fireworks, but packages for evening meals and viewing the fireworks from the comfort of your own boat can easily be arranged
