The Round the Island Race is one of the most exciting yacht races of the year. Approximately 1,700 yachts line up every year to race the 60 mile course around the Isle of Wight. Experiencing that many yachts around you is an exhilarating spectacle and provides a lasting memory.
We have crew places available for individuals who want to experience the excitement of this annual event. Our fabulous 2-day programme offers a very competitive package, providing a great mix of racing and socials.
Join on the Friday morning in Hamble for a welcome briefing before a day of training with your race skipper and fellow crew mates for the weekend. The focus will be on teamwork and maximising boat speed in preparation for the race. Friday evening the boat will return to Port Hamble for a crew de-brief and dinner ashore.
Saturday is race day and always begins with an early start! Following an action packed day of racing you will return to Hamble for the obligatory partying!
The Round the Island race is ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy the excitement and fun of a major event whilst learning new skills. It is a superb spectacle and one not to be missed. Newcomers to yacht racing are warmly welcomed by Pure Latitude.
