Anyone with a knowledge of the Isle of Wight will recognise the name West Cowes. It is usually referred to more commonly simply as Cowes, and it is the main town on the west bank of the River Medina. There is an East Cowes on the other riverbank as well, so the main town of Cowes is sometimes called West Cowes to distinguish it from the other one. Many people enjoy holidaying here, and they wouldn’t want any reason to consult a lawyer in West Cowes while they were there.
Cowes is perhaps best known for the regatta that takes place here every August, swelling the population of around 10,000 people by almost as much again. Needless to say, it brings a lot of business to the area, especially in terms of local hotels and similar establishments.
Enjoying Cowes Week
This is the name given to the week in August that is given over to the regatta. This is the place to come if you are passionate about boats, and you want to see the regatta in full flow. It is rare that anyone would remember their time at Cowes Week because of an injury they suffered there. No doubt it is rarer still for someone to be hurt because of negligence.
With so many people in the area, local businesses make every effort to ensure the place is safe and pleasant to enjoy during that week, just as it is every other week of the year. Ideally, there should be no situation that may present a potential hazard to a visitor, but there could potentially be incidents that occur if health and safety measures are not properly followed at all times. Thankfully, the odds of this sort of thing happening are long indeed.
