A new committee boat called Cowes United was launched at the weekend from Trinity Landing. The High Sheriff Ben Rouse was part of the celebration. Royal London member David Franks donated Cowes United and wishes it to be used by all the Clubs in Cowes. He has asked RLYC to manage the committee boat. It has been fully kitted out and has the backing of CCCA.
