Today saw the kick off of the10th annual Artemis Challenge race around the Isle of Wight at Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week. Meanwhile racing for Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week overall honours intensifies as most classes have just two days remaining to complete their points series’.

Today’s racing started in an unstable westerly breeze of 10-14 knots that gradually swung towards the north-west through the morning. It increased to give gusts in the upper teens as the thin cloud over the Solent broke up, giving way to long periods of sunshine.

Events this evening included the Fine Art Sails race, held in Star class keelboats, each with a mainsail design created by a different artist.

Later in the evening there was a spectacular aerobatic display by the Red Arrows, which were brought to the regatta by Artemis Investment Management.
