Round the Island Race weather and happy hour details

3 July 2018

 With this current weather system, there could well be more record-breaking opportunities on the cards for this Saturdays' race. One team looking to better last year’s performance in terms of smashing its own record is Tony Lawson’s MOD70 foiling trimaran Concise Fling . This super-fast multihull broke the Multihull race record last year with a time of 2h 22m 23s.

 For the ultimate race forecast the night before the event (Friday 6 July at 1800) head to Cowes Yacht Haven Event Centre for the Raymarine Live Weather Briefing where Simon Rowell will provide teams with a good idea of what to expect on the racecourse the next day. For those unable to make the Weather Briefing in person, you can sign up to watch the entire Raymarine Live Weather Briefing streamed live.

Simon Rowell will also be revealing how to enter a special prize draw for a chance to win a new Raymarine Axiom 9 inch and the new AIS700 – total value £2,390. The winner of the draw will be announced at 2100 at Island SC that evening.

Those who turn up at the club for the briefing will also benefit from the competitor ‘happy-hour’ party (1830-2100) that offers 15% off all drinks!

Elsewhere on shore during the Round the Island Race weekend, competitors and visitors to the island can enjoy an exciting schedule of entertainment kicking off with live music in Cowes Yacht Haven Race Village from 1600 on Friday 6 July.

The event prizegiving is scheduled to take place at on Sunday 8 July at Island Sailing Club.
