If you enjoy racing then this a race you should take part in at least once in your lifetime. The 50 nautical mile race around the Island is contested by up to 1800 yachts and is both exciting and spectacular; you don't often see the sight of so many sailors pitching themselves against each other!
The race is contested by both professional and amateur sailors: from high speed Catamarans to Folk boats, from teenagers to pensioners. The spirit of this race is one of inclusion, competitiveness and fun.
Bella already has a berth booked right in the centre of the action at Cowes Yacht Haven so you will have plenty of opportunity to enjoy the festivities.
We will be spending the Friday before the race practising our tacking, gybing, spinney hoists and dumps, as well as man overboard and trimming.
Bella will feed and water you well on board during the practising and racing and we will book restaurants for you in advance to ensure that your group has some great places to dine.
