Cowes Radio 2016 - Dick Johnson's last year???

The much-loved station will be back for it's 31st continuous year of operation at Cowes Week, the World's premier regatta. Cowes Radio provides the only live, continuous on the water commentary of sailing, giving minute-by-minute information to competitors, spectators and regatta followers, live from our fully instrumented commentary boat, and direct from our race experienced commentators Dick Johnson on the water and Simon Vigar ashore on the starting platform of the Royal Yacht Squadron.

Cowes Radio, the UK's longest running special event station, commands a large Dick afloat and highly responsive audience both online around the world and on FM radio. For competing yachtsmen the station provides essential news and race information such as official broadcast of the race courses from the platform of the Royal Yacht Squadron, tide times, winds, race results, dedicated weather forecasts from a marine meteorologist and essential regatta information.

A hugely experienced team of broadcasters bring you live commentary and interviews with celebrities, skippers, crews and organisers, winners and losers, race results and up-to the minute comment from the people who matter. We also broadcast competitions, fun and games, plus a social guide. Cowes Radio is a really useful way of finding out what's going on with the up-to the minute daily guide to 'what's on' and 'who's doing what.' We also stream live online and are listened to all over the World on the Internet. This year we are once again the audio of the Cowes Live! video feed of the racing starts that go with our commentaries.
