Round The Island Race 2016

The annual Round The Island Race is a one day yacht race around the Isle of Wight. Over 16,000 sailors on 1,700 boats of all shapes and sizes take part in the 50 nautical mile course which makes it one of the largest yacht races in the world and the fourth largest participation sporting event in the UK (after the London Marathon and the Great North and South Runs).

Duet, our 1912 classic yawl will be taking part in 2016 and you can join us and take a full active part in the team effort it takes to sail her. No experience is necessary as full training and instruction will be given the day before the race.
