Round the Island Race


Join in the action and experience the unrivalled thrill of taking part in one of the sailing world’s most famous races

First sailed in 1931, the race now boasts approximately 1,600 boats and over 16,000 sailors who take part each year, and the numbers are growing exponentially! Any boat and anybody can take part – last year saw Prince Harry step on board multihull Fast 40+ yacht ‘Invictus’ to get a slice of the action - so it’s no wonder it is widely regarded as the UK’s favourite yacht race!

For those wanting to get even closer to the action however, we can offer places on board, helmed by one of our expert skippers.

Not only is it a very special race to be a part of, but it’s also a great spectacle from land as well. For those who wish to just watch, taking the Key Haven ferry across to Hurst Castle offers one of the best views around, with the boats almost within touching distance!
