Round the island race

The Round the Island Race is one of the largest participation events in the UK and the most spectacular yacht regattas you can enter in the world. Every year more than 1500 yachts line up together on Saturday morning to race around the Isle of Wight.

Attracting a wonderful mix of beautiful classics, grand-prix racing yachts, corporate groups and families, the Round The Island race allows you to race alongside pros and novices alike.

No prior sailing experience is necessary as our charter packages include a professional racing skipper, first mate and a training day.

Three-Day Package

Make the most of ‘Britain’s Favourite Yacht Race’ with Sailing Logic’s three-day package. You and your team will join us on Friday for a training and familiarisation day to ensure you are ready for the big race. Friday evening you will moor up in Cowes on the Isle of Wight to soak up the pre-race atmosphere .

Saturday is race day! The Round the Island Race is a 50 nautical mile circumnavigation of the Isle of Wight usually taking 8-10 hours. After racing, you will join the apres-sail in the Round the Island Race Village, and Sunday allows your team the opportunity for some leisurely sailing around the Solent before heading home.

Boat Branding Options

In order to achieve as much exposure for your company as possible we offer branding options to maximise the impact of your brand when the yacht is on the water and also when it is moored in the marina.
You can choose to include a small hull logo on the bow of your yacht or you can upgrade to have a full hull length logo. Or why not have your own forestay banner or spinnaker made?
