Round The Island Yacht Race - Friday 31st May to Sunday 2nd June
Join the boat on Friday at 10am for a day’s intensive race training. Your professional skipper and crew will guide you through the intricacies of gybing the spinnaker and trimming the sails for optimum boat speed and build a team capable of sailing this yacht to its limits.
After an overnight stay on the boat in Cowes, we will head for the start line and discuss our tactics for the race before the gun goes off at around 7am on Saturday
Once the race has started boat speed, wind angle and collision avoidance are then our main priorities as we battle with hundreds of other yachts to reach the Needles! Once around the Needles it is usually time to launch the kite, and we can enjoy the race around St Catherine’s point and onto Bembridge, before tacking our way back through the Solent to the finish line.
After the race we can all enjoy the superb hospitality and night life that makes Cowes the yachting Mecca of the world.
