What or who is the Cowes in Cowes Week? Cowes, located off England's southern coast on the Isle of Wight, is a yachting center in the British Isles and the location of the Royal Yacht Squadron. On August 10, 1826, the first yachting regatta began; first prize was a "Gold Cup of the value of £100." The next year, King George IV showed his approval by presenting a "King's Cup" to the victor. It began as a three-day event and evolved into the current weeklong competition, Cowes Week. This year's regatta began on July 31 with over 1,000 boats competing in up to 40 different races over the eight days. One of the highlights of the week is always the fireworks display held on the final Friday of the competition (tomorrow). The sparklers are launched from barges in the Solent, the English Channel strait that hosts the races.
