Round the Island 2024

Round the Island Yacht Race (around the Isle of Wight) is one of the most iconic events in the world, and truly one of sailings greatest spectacles! Every year over 15,000 sailors and around 1,400 yachts compete in the Island Sailing Club’s Round the Island Yacht Race.

Grab a race berth onboard our X-Yacht 37 ‘Pure Attitude’ or charter one of our yachts with a professional skipper and take part in one of the world’s biggest yachting competitions.


About Round the Island Race 2024

The Round the Island Race is unique in its sheer scale; with thousands of yachts on the start line, ranging from small family cruising boats to sleek maxi racers.

When the canon fires on the Royal Yacht Squadron line off Cowes, the 55 mile course sends the fleet anticlockwise around the Isle of Wight, which takes anything from 3 – 10 hours – depending on the type of yacht. The infamous Solent tides and variable winds create incredibly exciting racing and a spectacle of epic proportions. It is just a great sailing experience.

It’s not just access to a great fleet of boats – I have used my points to attend a number of events on the water. Competing in the Round the Island race with the close quarters racing, was really exciting and is an amazing perk of membership.
