Cowes, located on the Isle of Wight in England, is a maritime town with a rich history and a strong association with sailing and yachting. Divided into East Cowes and West Cowes by the River Medina, the town is renowned for hosting one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious yachting events, Cowes Week. This annual regatta, dating back to 1826, attracts sailors and spectators from around the globe. Cowes also serves as a hub for boatbuilding and maritime industries, contributing to its maritime character.
