Round The Island Race

Take part in Britain’s most popular yacht race! With over 1,500 yachts racing around the Isle of Wight, it is an incredible sight and not to be missed!


The Round the Island race is one of the most popular yacht regattas you can enter. Typically over 1500 yachts line up on Saturday morning to race around the Isle of Wight.

Attracting a wonderful mix of beautiful classics, grand-prix racing yachts, corporate groups and families the Round The Island race allows you race alongside boats of all shapes and sizes.
