Cowes Week 2017

29 July – 5 August 2017: As the official charity of Cowes Week, the Andrew Simpson Foundation will be providing activities both on and off the water during the regatta.

Our aim is to help members of the public and local community groups get afloat to experience the excitement of sailing at this iconic event.

There are work opportunities available for those with relevant sailing qualifications who are interested in joining our Cowes Week team.

Businesses on the island can engage with visitors by partnering with us on a range of activities.
