As Skandia Cowes Week 2008 drew to a close Stuart Quarrie - Cowes Week Limited's CEO - spoke this morning about the hugely successful week and says the general feeling from competitors and visitors is a positive one.

'It's been another fantastic Skandia Cowes Week and for the first time in the 10 years I've been here we haven't lost a single race, to either too much or too little wind, all classes had all eight races. As far as I'm concerned that's a successful week.

'Most of the competitors, most of the time have been very happy, however, some of the time we set courses that aren't quite at the right angles because the wind shifts and so on, but the overall feeling is really good.'

As the 14-year partnership with Skandia comes to and end, Quarrie chatted about the changes that have occured over that period, and how Skandia has really helped to develop the week.

'The event is now really vibrant thanks to the support we've been given. One of the biggest changes over this period has been building the regatta centre four years ago (2004). That was a real milestone and we couldn't have done that without some of the infrastructure money from Skandia. Another milestone that Skandia helped towards is the Parade Landing which again we wouldn't have been able to contribute anything like as much as we did without Skandia's support. So Skandia's support is not just about the week but about the infrastructure as well and we are really grateful for that.'

Plans are already in place for next year's Cowes Week which runs from 1 to 8 August.
