• Women's Day at Cowes Week

Women’s Day at Cowes Week which celebrates the contribution and achievement of women in sailing. With women accounting for some 40% of competitors racing in Cowes Week, let`s celebrate that growing participation, and continue to encourage women of all ages to enjoy our fabulous sport – be they sailing, organising, or managing a racecourse.

Cowes Week features many mixed crews, as well as female-only crews, and while there are many women out racing, it is less common for women to take the helm, so on Women’s Day, they especially encourage female helms.

The youngest female helm in 2022 was just 11 years old! Trophies for the leading female helm and also the leading all-female crew will be presented at the daily prize giving on Tuesday evening.

The Women’s Day Trophy was introduced for the first time in 2006 to champion the role of women in sailing and the sheer number of female competitors racing at Cowes Week, where more than one-third of competitors are female. Trophies for the leading female helm and also the leading all-female crew were also presented at the Women’s Day reception.
