Head to Skandia Cowes Week for your chance to race a radio controlled yacht 11/7/07

Visitors to Cowes Week will have the chance to race high performance radio controlled yachts.

A number of local Cowes-based owners have kindly volunteered their boats and their time to enable members of the public to sign up for a 15 minute race off Cowes Parade by Trinity Landing.

The racing will take place between 1800 and 2000 on Sunday 5 August, on the Ellen MacArthur Trust Charity Day (Monday 6 August), and on Champagne G.H. Mumm Ladies Day (Thursday 9 August), when racing will be just for the girls. Donations to the Ellen MacArthur Trust will be welcomed from all those competing.

To take part, all you need to do is sign-up at the Event Information Point on Cowes Parade (subject to availability).
