Broadcasting at the world's premier regatta, Cowes Week. Cowes Radio at the Heart of the Regatta!
Celebrating it's 30th continuous year of operation at Cowes Week, the World's premier regatta, Cowes Radio sponsored by Charles Stanley Direct provides the only live, continuous on the water commentary of sailing. Giving minute-by-minute information to competitors, spectators and regatta followers, live from our fully instrumented commentary boat, and direct from our race experienced commentators Dick Johnson on the water and Simon Vigar ashore on the starting platform of the Royal Yacht Squadron.
Cowes Radio, the UK's longest running special event station, commands a large and highly responsive audience both online around the world and brodcast on FM radio. For competing yachtsmen the station provides essential news and race information such as official broadcast of the race courses from the platform of the Royal Yacht Squadron, tide times, winds, race results, dedicated weather forecasts from a marine meteorologist and essential regatta information.
A hugely experienced team of broadcasters bring you live commentary and interviews with celebrities, skippers, crews and organisers, winners and losers, race results and up-to the minute comment from the people who matter. We also broadcast competitions, fun and games, plus a social guide. Cowes Radio is a really useful way of finding out what's going on with the up-to the minute daily guide to 'what's on' and 'who's doing what.' We also stream live online and listened to all over the World on the Internet. This year we will once again be the audio of the Cowes Live! video feed of the racing starts that go with our commentaries.
