What is it?

The Round The Island Race is one of the biggest events Island wide. Grab an available berth or charter one of their yachts with Skipper and be part of one of the world’s biggest yachting competitions. It is truly a great spectacle. 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.  


No previous experience is necessarily required.

You can rent race prepared yachts and also cruiser yachts that are less complicated.

Talk to the organisers so that they can match you, your experience and attitude with the right boat! They have an experienced Skipper and First Mate on board each boat to help guide you through what is required on your Round the Island Race experience .
