Welcome to Cowes Harbour Commission
Cowes Harbour Commission (CHC) is the statutory harbour authority for Cowes Harbour. Our area of jurisdiction commences from the Prince Consort north cardinal buoy in the Outer Harbour and extends right up the River Medina to the Folly. Our mission is to ensure that the harbour is a safe place for leisure and work.
Cowes and East Cowes are home to many dynamic businesses that continue a long heritage in the maritime sector and Cowes is also famous worldwide as the home of world yachting.
Via this Harbour Commission website, we aim to provide all of our stakeholders, local residents, visitors, and commercial harbour users with a professional and user-friendly resource to share information on our statutory, commercial and community activities.
