Join us on Saturday 3rd July 2016 for a fun race around the beautiful Isle of Wight!
Round The Island Yacht Race First raced in 1931, the magnificent spectacle of over 1700 yachts heading towards The Needles and racing around the Isle of Wight, is unforgettable. Competitors come from all over the south coast of England as well as from much further afield, as far as the USA and New Zealand, making this a truly world-class event.
For Round The Island Yacht Race join the boat on Friday at 10am for a day’s intensive race training. Your professional skipper and crew will guide you through the intricacies of gybing the spinnaker and trimming the sails for optimum boat speed and build a team capable of sailing this yacht to its limits.
After an overnight stay in Cowes we will head for the start line and discuss our tactics for the race before the gun goes off at around 7am on Saturday
Once the Round the Island Yacht Race has started boat speed, wind angle and collision avoidance are then our main priorities as we battle with hundreds of other yachts to reach the Needles. Once around the Needles it is usually time to launch the kite, and we can enjoy the race around St Catherine’s point and onto Bembridge, before tacking our way back through the Solent to the finish line.
After the race we can all enjoy the superb hospitality and night life that makes Cowes the yachting Mecca of the world.
