Cowes Week bosses have signed up a team of Hampshire students to provide television coverage of the regatta.

Solent University's Solent Productions will create daily video news reels which will then be provided to global media for broadcast.

Trevor Thorne, director of Marketing and Communications at Solent University, said: “Our strengths in media and maritime education combine to make us a natural choice for providing television production and broadcast support at this iconic event. The university is proud to be associated with Cowes Week.”
