The annual Round the Island Race is the biggest event in the yachting calendar. With over 1,800 boats competing, it is one of the most famous races in the world. The course takes you around the Isle of Wight, dodging the various off-lying rocks and other competitors along the way. The race starts and finishes at Cowes, after racing for about 60 miles. You can now charter a yacht from Stormforce Coaching to compete in this event.

Ready-made teams can hire one of our race yachts for whole boat charter and enjoy the event with friends, colleagues or family, whilst still benefiting from a race-ready yacht and experienced race skipper onboard.

Course Duration:

The Round the Island Race is a one-day event and will next take place on Friday 30th June 2017
