The annual Round the Island Race is a one day race around the Isle of Wight that attracts over 1,400 boats and around 15,000 sailors each year! Making it one of the largest yacht races in the world, and the fourth largest sporting event in the UK after the London Marathon and the Great North and South Runs.

This is an excellent opportunity to be involved in a race with world-renowned sailors racing against families and first-time racers, in the same event! Whether you compete regularly or are new to the sport, taking part in the Island Sailing Club’s Round the Island Race is a day to remember.

You will be competing on board Sidney II, our luxurious Grand Soleil 50, a powerful performance yacht built for speed and absurd comfort!


FRI 28th: Practice day on route from Hamble to Cowes. We'll then berth in Cowes and have access to the Race Village where the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly with live music and pop up food bars.

SAT 29th: It's Race Day! We'll slip lines early and head to the start line. After we cross the finish line, we'll head back to Cowes to the Race Village for more live music and drinks. The atmosphere is brilliant so expect a party!

SUN 30th: A leisurely breakfast and return sail from Cowes back to Hamble for mid-afternoon.
