It depends on which day you're coming and what you want to see!

The race is at 10am on Sunday so don't expect to see anything other than boats leaving for the start at Hurst much after 9am - if you want to see stuff going on then come on Saturday when all of the boats will be there - as reported elsewhere on here the finish is now in the Solent but you won't see the actual finish from Cowes itself, you'll have to head West for that to the Finish Gate as defined by the East Lepe and Gurnard Ledge buoys.

The boats will start returning after around two hours? if it's flat and the likes of Vee can go at it hard, just add more time for bad weather!
