Ladies Day will return to Cowes Week on Tuesday 1st August with a number of celebrations culminating in the presentation of the Ladies Day Trophy at an exclusive evening reception.

Ladies Day was introduced for the first time in 2006 to champion the role of women in sailing and to celebrate both female achievement and participation in the sport. There are some 8,000 competitors taking part in the regatta and around a third of them are female.  Sailing is one of the few mainstream sporting events where men and women can compete on equal terms and the strength of female competitors has grown with a 150% increase in female skippers over the last decade.

In 2016 Hannah Stodel was the eleventh deserving winner of the Ladies Day Trophy in recognition of her phenomenal achievements. Nominations for this year’’s winner will open in the early summer.
