Regattas are perfect ways to spend a summer - watching as skilled sailors take to the seas and show off just what their yachts were designed to do. During these regattas, mingle with other spectators and owners over cocktail parties and other glamorous social events. Here are six regattas around the world where you can watch these elegant regattas and partake in the festivities. Bon voyage!
Shame they missed out Cowes Week ! - one of the oldest and most respected regattas in the World. The event lasts for eight days and takes place each August. One of the great things about Cowes Week is that spectators can watch much of the racing from the shore. The Green and The Parade are great places to view the action and spectators also now have a number of fantastic opportunities to go afloat.
