West Cowes is a beautiful English seaport town and civil parish on the Isle of Wight. West Cowes is positioned on the west bank of the River Medina, facing the smaller town of East Cowes on the east bank. The two towns are connected by the Cowes Floating Bridge, a chain ferry.
West Cowes has been the home of international yacht racing since the founding of the Royal Yacht Squadron in 1815. The town also gives its name to the world’s oldest regular regatta, Cowes Week, which takes place every year in the first week of August. Later on in the summer, powerboat races are held.
Unfortunately, it is only natural that with such wonderful water sports and facilities, there are also water related accidents in West Cowes. These can take the form of ferry accidents, accidents with a powerboat or even a regatta accident. However, nothing makes such accidents worse than when they were not your fault, but due to someone else’s negligence.
