Event Programme
The perfect combination

The EMC Silicon Cup spans two days during the middle of September, leading up to the weekend proving participants with the option of taking additional time to explore the delightful waterside town of Cowes (the sailing capital of the UK) and its surrounding area.

All activities take place from Cowes Yacht Haven, a purpose built sailing event facility, which is in close proximity to the town and all amenities, including the high-speed ferry service to Southampton.
