UF50 celebrations announced to mark the 50th anniversary of Uffa Fox's passing

Uffa Fox (1898-1972) was a legend in his lifetime, one of the most highly regarded naval architects and enthusiast of all aspects of sailing, a man of Cowes and East Cowes.

Today Uffa Fox is a name that comes to mind when one thinks of Cowes and its yachting history, a legend, an innovator, a creative person with character who people remember and love. A passionate sailor and boat designer, he contributed to the Island’s history with his love of sailing.

This August there will be a range of activities across Cowes to mark the anniversary of his passing. The Celebration UF50 is a celebration of Uffa’s life and to mark the 50th anniversary of his death. A total of twelve organisations in Cowes and East Cowes have got together to plan this memorable event. The focal point will be Cowes Parade where a display of around 50 Uffa Fox designed boats will be assembled, a number going back to the 1920s.
