Round the Island Race 2022

It’s only 8 weeks until the Round the Island Race 2022, have you got your entry in yet?

The race is pretty simple – start at Cowes on the Isle of Wight and head West and just follow the coastline until you arrive back in Cowes – easy! Obviously a bit of navigation is needed to avoid the main hazards such as The Needles, St Catherine’s, Bembridge Ledge and Ryde Sands but it’s a great day whether you are an experienced racer or just enjoy sailing.

There’s normally over 1000 boats that head to the start, the fastest boats only take a few hours whereas the smaller cruisers can take up to 12 hours. If you’d like to enter click HERE

Do you have a boat to sell?

Are you thinking of buying a new boat for the upcoming season? Now is definitely the time to start looking and if you are lucky enough to currently own a boat it is more than likely that you are going to have to sell her to make way for the new one.

If you are thinking of using a Yacht Broker then why not try Boatshed. They will handle the sale of your boat from start to finish and you only pay commission if they sell your boat. With over 70 locations worldwide your boat will reach local and international purchasers enhancing the possibility of your boat being sold much quicker than other Yacht Brokers.

Good luck with the sale and if you find you have any spare old sails you need to get rid of then you know where to send them!!
