Round The Island Race

Arial View of the Fleet 
The busiest day of the year for the Solent! Round The Island Race sponsored by J.P Morgan Asset Management.

It is the fourth largest sporting event in the UK and was first organised by the Island Sailing Club. The course is 50 miles long, starting from the Squadron in Cowes. Created to cater for smaller boats, the first race began in 1931 and had 25 entrants. Numbers slowly increased and this year there is 1647 boats taking part! Whether you are a keen racer or just want a family day out round the island race has always catered for all!

Jeanette has taken part in round the island race for many years, and this year you will find her on a Grand Soleil 37 (Grand Slam). Thanks to updated technology you can now track all boat’s participating in the event.

In 2010, Grand Slam came first in class, let’s hope they achieve another successful result this year!

Jeanette is not the only one taking part in the historic race, a few of our boat owners are taking part too, send us in your pics of your day to

If you are out on the water today, make sure all give them a wave!
