Isle of Wight - Cowes
Cowes is an English seaport town and civil parish on the Isle of
Wight. Cowes is located on the west bank of the estuary of the River
Medina facing the smaller town of East Cowes on the east Bank. The
two towns are linked by the Cowes Floating Bridge, a chain ferry.
The population was 9,663 in the 2001 census, a figure that is easily
doubled during the regatta in early August.
Leland's 19th century verses described the towns poetically as "The
two great Cowes that in loud thunder roar, This on the eastern, that
the western shore".
Cowes has been seen as a home for international yacht racing since
the founding of the Royal Yacht Squadron in 1815. The town gives its
name to the world's oldest regular regatta, Cowes Week, which occurs
annually in the first week of August. Later on in the summer,
powerboat races are held.
Much of the town's architecture is still heavily influenced by the
style of ornate building which Prince Albert popularised.
