There are exciting changes taking place at the Marina for this year’s Cowes Week with a new event partner and the site rebranded as ‘Cowes at Shepards’. We will be open from morning till late providing the go-to venue and one-stop shop for great food and drinks, entertainment and relaxation throughout the regatta.
‘Cowes at Shepards’ is the affiliated Cowes Week venue where sailors and spectators can socialise in a smaller, more intimate, up-market and club type environment. Delicious food will be served from breakfast through to dinner with late night snacks also on offer.
Shepards has become renowned as the place to go for après racing drinks and this year there will be three bars to choose from! A new VIP Pier bar will be situated on the Shepards Wharf Pier with some of the best views of Cowes Harbour, The Sugar Store will be open during the day and also into the evening as our regatta nightclub, and then the Yard Bar will cater for all tastes.
We are also excited to hear that Cowes TV, the regatta’s TV station, will be returning and is set to have a prominent place at Shepards – so you can look forward to enjoying refreshments whilst keep up-to-date with all of the action out on the water and those all important results.
All boats berthed at Shepards during Cowes Week will be invited to attend a residents’ opening party on Friday, 28th July. There will also be some other exclusive services that boats moored at the Marina will be able to access to make your stay at Shepards as enjoyable as possible… more details to be announced soon.
We are busy planning a whole host of great activities for ‘Cowes at Shepards’ including live music, DJs, daytime activities and much, much more. Please follow the ‘Cowes at Shepards’ Facebook page and keep checking the ‘Cowes at Shepards’ website for up to the minute announcements!
