A NUMBER of Cowes Week races have been cancelled today (Sunday) due to high winds on the Solent.

Organisers said: "We have regrettably had to make the decision to abandon racing again today for the majority of white group classes.

"We are hopeful conditions will improve tomorrow."

All other races are due to take place today as planned, and organisers said the event promised to be a 'classic, breezy, south-westerly Cowes Week.'

All the racing was abandoned yesterday (Saturday) due to the weather.
