Cowes Week is one of the greatest events in Britain's social calendar. Thousands of yachtsmen and women take to the Isle of Wight's waters in beautiful boats, but far more flock to the shoreside pubs, bars and restaurants for the incredible nautical celebration.

It’s a spectacle not to be missed, and on Red's exclusive summer voyage, you’ll sail the Solent onboard Tradewind Voyages’ Golden Horizon. The world’s largest square-rigged sailing vessel, the eco-friendly ship is powered by nature and offers impressive luxuries - from a wonderful restaurant and choice of bars to a spa, gym, library and lecture theatre.


Spending 11 whole days exploring the UK's glorious coastline, you'll spend two days in Cowes and have plenty of time to take in the Isle of Wight, from Osborne House to the Needles.

During the luxurious sailing, you'll also visit Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. In Falmouth, you can wander around the harbour’s galleries and boutiques, take your pick from Cornish pasties, cream teas or homemade fudge, or visit the Eden Project’s giant geodesic Biomes, Tintagel or Land’s End.

The wild Isles of Scilly are home to wonderful flora and fauna and Caribbean-esque white-sand beaches.

Meanwhile, in Plymouth, you'll want to spend time in Poole, with its wildlife-rich islands, waterfront restaurants and Blue Flag beaches, before setting sail back to Harwich.

It's set to be a summer escape to remember, bringing you seaside bliss without the hassle of trying to find holiday home or hotel availability this August.
