Will you be heading to Cowes Week this summer? This year, Red Funnel Ferries will be celebrating 50 years of continuous service between Southampton and West Cowes as they are announced to be the headline sponsor of this year’s Cowes Week firework display.

Cowes Week will be taking place from Saturday 10th August until Saturday 17th August and is the oldest and largest sailing regatta of its kind in the world. It boasts an extensive 8-day schedule of races and shore-side entertainment. The fireworks display will commence on Friday 16th August at 21:30 to close the week.

Red Funnel Ferries is a high-speed ferry service which transports passengers, vehicles and freight between the Isle of Wight and the English mainland. The company operates over 35 ferries to the Isle of Wight every day with crossing times as short as 23 minutes.
