Holy Trinity Church is a Church of England parish church situated on the seafront at Cowes, Isle of Wight. It overlooks the Solent and the Royal Yacht Squadron, and was consecrated in 1832 as  “a place of worship on Cowes forshore for sailors and seafarers”.  It still has special links with sailors, with links to the Royal Yacht Squadron and other sailing clubs and special services are held for Cowes Week Regatta.  There is a memorial for the sailors killed in the  Fastnet race in 1979.  However, it is still a regular parish church, welcoming regular worshippers and visitors and well behaved dogs!
