Round The Island Race Yacht Charter 2011

On the 25th June 2011 the Isle of Wight “Round the Island Race” starts from just off shore at Cowes on the island. A mass of yachts compete in many different classes. I am no sailor, so the difference in these classes of yacht is lost on me, but with the sheer number of yachts on the water at any one time is a sight to behold.

An early start is needed if you are going to watch the most prestigious yachts start. Something like 5am sees these front runners set off of the 5 or so hour race around the island. If we get the usual south westerly winds then as the yachts round the Needles lighthouse a mass of spinnakers are as sight to behold.

Our charter yachts are both booked for the race day, but our fantastic charter rib is available for a skipper race following charters for only £ 699 for the whole day including skipper, fuel, mooring fees and all the speed we need to watch the race.
