2 Nights: 25 - 27 September 2020

If you only ever do one race a year, it has to be this one! Setting out from Cowes, you’ll race about 60nm around the Isle of Wight – keeping all land on your port side. With around 1,600 other yachts and 18,000 sailors on the water, it’s the UK’s 4th biggest sports participation event and one HUGE party in the beer tent afterwards.

We have several options of yachts for this event from an out and out IRC 1 division winning race boat, to more comfortable cruisers. Contact us for latest availability and suitability.

Start: Cowes Yacht Haven or Port Hamble or Portsmouth, 25 September 2020 am

Finish: Cowes Yacht Haven or Port Hamble or Portsmouth, 27 September 2020 pm

Friday 25 September is your training day – essential before embarking on this race. You’ll spend most of the say out on the Solent, bonding as a crew and practice key manoeuvres before heading to Cowes for an overnight stay.

Early Saturday morning, grab breakfast and head off racing around the island. Finishing somewhere between 6 and 9 hours later, it’s time berth in Cowes and hit the race village and beer tent. Sunday, nurse the hangover, and for those who embarked in Hamble, sail back over the Solent. One perfect weekend!
