Cowes Week Ltd tell us that Artemis Investment Management has extended its support of the regatta in 2015 to include an  aerial display by the Red Arrows.

Artemis Investment Management, sponsors of the Artemis Challenge at Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes week, have stepped-in with support to ensure the regatta’s Red Arrows display goes ahead in 2015. The timing is perfect,  as this year’s edition of the celebrated annual charity race around the Isle of Wight looks set to be the largest in its nine year history. Over the years, the 50 mile sprint around the island has welcomed some of the world’s most celebrated sailors and the celebrity guests onboard are expected to match the impressive fleet.

Kate Johnson, Commercial & Marketing Director for Cowes Week Limited said: “It will be a fitting end to a spectacular day on the water at Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week. The Artemis Challenge starts at 10am on 13 August. It will be a racing start not to be missed and we recommend watching from behind the cannons by the Royal Yacht Squadron, or along The Green. The Red Arrows display will begin at 6.50pm, head to Cowes Parade for the best view”

“In addition, we’re extremely excited to announce an incredible display by an RAF Typhoon, which wowed the crowds at Cowes Week in 2014. The Typhoon display is at 7.30pm on 14 Friday, ahead of the magnificent Firework display which will begin at 9.30pm”
