Round The Island Race
The Round the Island Race is one of the most exciting yacht races of the year. Approximately 1,700 yachts line up every year to race the 60 mile course around the Isle of Wight. Experiencing that many yachts around you is an amazing spectacle and provides a lasting memory.
This is a definite favourite for many yachtsmen and despite the fierce competition one of our teams has returned with a trophy every year since 2007 including first in class and podium in division. Several of the crew even made it into their local press for the achievement!
We have space on our yachts for individuals who want to experience the excitement of this annual event. Our fabulous 3-day programme offers a very competitive package, providing a wonderful mix of racing, fun and socials.
You will join our Beneteau First 40 yacht on the Friday morning in Hamble for a welcome briefing before a day of training with your race skipper for the weekend. You will concentrate on teamwork and maximising boat speed in preparation for the race.
Both Friday and Saturday nights the yacht will moor in Cowes. After a training day de-brief and checking the latest weather forecast it is time for an early dinner and then to bed, ready for the Round the Island Race which usually starts very early on the Saturday morning. Following an action packed day of racing you will return to Cowes for the obligatory partying! Sunday is a day to chill and relax followed by a cruise back to Hamble.
The Round the Island Race is ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy the excitement and fun of a major event whilst learning new skills. It is a superb spectacle and one not to be missed. Newcomers to yacht racing are warmly welcomed by Sailing Logic.
