Round the Island Yacht Race (around the Isle of Wight) is just the most amazing event. Grab an available berth or charter one of our yachts with Skipper and be part of one of the world’s biggest yachting competitions – it is truly one of sailings greatest spectacles! Around 1400 yachts and over 16,000 sailors compete in the Island Sailing Club’s Round the Island Yacht Race.
The yachts race anticlockwise around around the Isle of Wight, over 50 miles, starting at Cowes. It takes from 3 hours – 10 hours, depending upon the type of yacht and the wind. It is just a great weekend sailing experience.
No previous experience is necessarily required.
