All Day



This year’s Round the Island Race will take place on Saturday 3rd July 2021.

The event is a complete circumnavigation of the Isle of Wight starting on the Royal Yacht Squadron line just off Cowes. The fastest entrants will finish the 50nm course within 4 hours with 40’ yachts taking on average 6-8 hours.

This is currently the world’s largest yacht race. Peaking at 2000 boats in 2011 for the 80th anniversary, the Round the Island Race typically attracts over 1700 boats, with as many as 16,000 competitors. Thus making it the fourth largest participatory sporting event in the UK. Beaten only by the London Marathon, and Great North and South Runs!
