Sail-In Cinema At Cowes!

To mark the end of Cowes Week on Friday 12 August 2011, the event hosted the world's first-ever Sail-In Cinema.

With a 10.5m x 5.5m screen erected off Cowes Esplanade, sailors on boats didn't have to venture far for a unique screening of the fitting picture 'Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World'.

Around £75,000 worth of fireworks lit up the skies afterwards and it's thought around 200,000 people watched it.

Commenting on the Sail-In Cinema on the Friday, Juliet McInnes, spokesperson for Talisker, said:

"We are really excited about bringing this unique experience to the world's best-known sailing event. The film seems a fitting way to help celebrate the end to a remarkable week of sailing; we are hoping people can sit back, relax and raise a dram of Talisker to toast to the silver screen".
