Fastnet 2013

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston and Dee Caffari MBE are in Cowes, reviewing Cowes Week and looking ahead to the Fastnet race.

They talk to Eddie Warden-Owen from RORC about the appeal of the race, and hear from some of the competitors taking part.

Also, Cowes Week chief executive officer Stuart Quarrie looks back on the world famous regatta, and harbour master Captain Stuart McIntosh offers some timely advice for those planning to watch the firework display from their boats.

The Solent is famous for its rich maritime heritage and the H2O Show covers all aspects of life on the water - leisure, business and sport. Whether you're a sailing professional or just like watching the boats go by on the Solent, the programme will have something to appeal to you.

The H2O Show is also available as a podcast and you can get news and features from the programme on via Twitter.
