Where to watch the start in Cowes

Yachts will start from the Royal Yacht Squadron line in Cowes. Starting sequences begin on
1200 BST on Sunday 16th August

The best vantage points for the start will be along Cowes Green and Egypt Esplanade on the Isle of Wight. Spectators will also be able to listen to the live commentary on the speakers along Cowes Parade and The Green from Fastnet Radio.

As the fleet funnels out of the Solent there will be a good chance to see the yachts from Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight and Hurst Castle on the mainland. Further along the coast Anvil Point, St Alban’s Head, and Portland Bill should also give a good view of the race on its outbound leg.
