Entries for the Round the Island Race open here at 00:00 on January 27th 2017 at which point the Notice of Race will also be released. Our early-bird entry period will last for around three weeks, during which time you can save on your entry fee - so do make sure you get your entry in early to benefit.
If you entered the race last year, you'll received a link to your pre-filled entry form, which will save you time when you make your entry. If you've never entered before, don't worry the process is really straightforward!
We plan to have our usual one-design classes (including Sunsail F40, J/70, J/80, J/88, Contessa 32, Nicholson 32), as well as classes for IRC-rated boats, MOCRA multihulls, Gaffers, Sportsboats, Folkboats, Classic Racing Yachts and general cruising boats. The complete entry requirements will be contained in the Notice of Race so do make sure you read that carefully to make sure your boat complies with the entry conditions.
If your boat is eligible to sail under IRC but you don't have an IRC rating, you can apply for a Single Event Rating for the race from the RORC. Alternatively you can enter in the slightly more relaxed ISCRS division where a simple rating will be allocated to your boat by the Island Sailing Club. Note that for this option you will need to provide us with measurement details for your boat.
If you haven't already signed up for our newsletters, why not do so now? We'll keep you updated with our plans and remind you of key dates for the race.
