Round The Island Race – 29th June – 1 July

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

All berths have been allocated for the 2012 race. This remains a big event on the Solent sailing calendar and last year there were nearly 2,000 entries. It is a fantastic experience sailing alongside over 1500 other boats round the Isle of Wight.

If you are interested in participating in next years’ race , please get in touch. Don’t worry if you don’t have much racing experience – we will try and spread the experience across the boats.

More information can be found here:

Cost: £340 per berth [this event is a little more expensive to cover race entry/insurance]

If you would like to take part in this or any other events on the programme, please let Hazell know at
