Raise '90 in 90'

Young people are set to be back on the water with the Trust this year after COVID saw all their 2020 sailing and outdoor activities cancelled. And to celebrate this, and the race's 90th anniversary, the Trust is inviting entrants to raise at least £90 - either individually or as boats - by encouraging family and friends to sponsor you in this year's race.

Since becoming the official Round the Island Race charity in 2005, an incredible £299,266 has been raised for the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, making a huge difference to hundreds of young lives. Now you have the chance to help get the charity past the magic £300,000 milestone!

An awesome top prize, along with a number of other goodies, will be announced for the top fundraisers soon, so watch this space!

Rebuilding Young People's Confidence

Young people need support more than ever as COVID has massively amplified the isolation, loneliness and anxiety they have experienced. That is why the Trust is so excited to be getting young people back on the water this year after COVID saw all sailing and outdoor activities cancelled in 2020.

Visit our Just Giving page to donate to the campaign, or set up your own fundraising page and invite your friends and family to sponsor you for taking part in this year's race.
