Cowes Torquay Cowes Powerboat Race

The Cowes Torquay powerboat race is actually 2 races on the same day. The shorter race runs from Cowes to Portland and back to Cowes which covers about 100 miles in total. The longer race is the full Cowes to Torquay and back to Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

This year was the 50th running of the race and attracted over 40 boats from all over the world. The winner collects the Harmsworth Cup which is as renowned as the sailing Americas cup.

I`m sure that in 2011 SouthSea Charters will be offering an exciting rib or yacht charters to cover parts of the race.
