Round the Island Race


The Round the Island race has been taking place since 1931, offering a world-class sailing competition for small boats (5-25 tons). From 25 competitors in that first race to now hundreds, the legacy of the Round the Island race has evolved to an impressive organisation and a hugely popular event for the entire country.

This year's race will take place on the 7th of July, with the start and finish on either side of Cowes. Visit the website for more information. Easily accessed by bus, Rookley Park is the perfect base for your sailing-filled weekend, offering accommodation perfect for families and groups.
