The Round the Island Race is the biggest yacht race of the year, globally. With so many sailors in one place, the tension and on-the-water battles make it a unique race. If you want an exhilarating competitive race, a fantastic spectacle, a real sense of achievement and a lasting memory then look no further. It is a superb spectacle, and everyone should do it at least once!
The Racers boat will be on our X-37 which is more performance oriented, competing under IRC with the racers and with hi-tech laminate sails. This is the boat to join if you are a racer or think you will enjoy the cut and thrust of battling it out on the water.
The itinerary (subject to change):
Friday – Join your race skipper and fellow crew at 09:00am in Hamble for a day of training. The focus will be on teamwork and maximising boat speed in preparation for the race. On Friday evening the boat will return to Port Hamble for a crew de-brief and dinner ashore.
Saturday – Race Day always begins with an early start! After the race you will return to Hamble for departure. Expect the race to last around 8-9 hours.
If accommodation is required for the Friday evening, please do discuss requirements with the PL team. Accommodation is not guaranteed.
Price does not include onshore accommodation or catering. The itinerary is subject to change dependent on weather and race start times.
