    COWES WEEK PROGRAMME 2019

    COWES CORINTHIAN YACHT CLUB

  • Commodore’s Cowes Week Update We are now heading into our busiest time of the year. A lot of work has been done to get us ready much of which is not visible. The dredging was completed on programme and we now have sufficient water at all states of the tide for our regular marina users and dry sailing boats. If you are a marina user you will probably have noticed that most of the pontoon decking has been replaced again as the previous material flexed too much. There are a couple more days of work to complete the job which will be undertaken between Classics Week and Cowes Week and then the job will be complete. The Site Team has worked tirelessly supporting both the dredging and pontoon decking programmes. Thanks to them we will be ready for Cowes Week.

    On the sailing front it is great to see increased activity in the fleets. The Andrew Cassell Foundation has raised its profile under the guidance of Andy and Matt Grier. They have three Sonars entered for Cowes Week this year which will be crewed by a mixture of able bodied and disabled sailors. If you would like to sail with the Foundation contact Matt through the Office. I am delighted that we have two more Flying Fifteens on site breathing more life into that fleet. The XOD entry for both Classics Week and Cowes Week is solid as usual. In Cowes Week all clubs are invited to enter teams of three boats which must be made up of a mixture of black and white group. We usually have plenty of white group boats but not so many black, so if you have entered in black group we need you! Anyone who would like to be in a team should contact the Office.

    Socially we have a great programme lined up for you again in Cowes Week. The Commodore’s Cocktail Party will be on Sunday as is our tradition. Then on Wednesday the theme for our big night this year is Steampunk. This is nowhere near as scary as it sounds; we are talking about HG Wells, Jules Verne, Mary Shelley etc, Victorian science fantasy. In the interests of research the Flag Officers went to a Steampunk festival and as you can see with a hat and a pair of goggles you can join in the fun. Just dress to impress. We have the brilliant Wight Hot Pipes who are steampunk personified – or bagpipes with attitude. They will bring the house down as usual.

    As you are aware we are largely a club of volunteers. To send our sailors out full of energy we have the famous CCYC bacon rolls available every morning and when they come back exhausted there are burgers awaiting them. This is all done by volunteers and unfortunately we have lost Jo Brown this year who we relied on heavily. So if you are able to help out with a morning or afternoon shift on the barbecue that would be much appreciated, as usual contact the Office. On the final Saturday of Cowes Week we will put the barbecue away and Christine’s Vintage Afternoon Teas will make a jolly civilised way to end the week.

    Enjoy the rest of the summer Mike Dixon

    At the festival we discovered an amazing support act, Ichabod and his robotic steampunk band. He comes with his own accessory, a caravan which he refers to as his submarine which houses his robots. If you don’t go anywhere else this Cowes Week do not miss this one. Ichabod, alias Paul, will be staying on for Friday when he will perform another of his acts to support the Tex Mex Firework Night Party.
