Cowes powerboat festival

Shelley Jory-Leigh and Tracey Clarke are at the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes.

Shelley is in conversation with Dag Pike, the inventor of the RiB.

As final preparations are made for the Cowes Classic powerboat race, Shelley meets some of the teams in the race pits.

And away from power, Tracey looks ahead to the 2.4 mR world championships in Poole and hears about the Association of Sail Training Organisations

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.
