Aberdeen Asset Management is proud to sponsor Cowes Week.
The first race was for a Gold Cup of the Value of £100, held in 1826 for just seven yachts under the flag of the Royal Yacht Club. Although many things have changed, some still remain the same, Cowes Week is one of the UK’s longest running and most successful sporting events and is a key highlight of the British summer. 40 races a day, 1,000 boats, 8,500 competitors and 100,000 spectators make this the largest sailing regatta of its kind.
