Entries for the world-famous Round the Island Race will open at 00:01 on Friday (3rd January), it has been announced.

The first competitor to sign-up on opening day will win a bottle of Mermaid Gin, and the next 20 will be placed in a draw to win 1 of 4 additional bottles of the highly regarded spirit, hand-crafted on the Isle of Wight. Last year there was a record first-day entry total of 151 competitors taking advantage of the early-bird discount to register their entry.

The 2020 edition of the Round the Island Race takes place on Saturday 30th May, a few weeks earlier than usual to accommodate tidal conditions. It truly lives up to its reputation as a ‘Race for All’ – welcoming sailors from all over the world, with professional sailors, families and first-time racers competing next to one another around the stunning coastline of the Isle of Wight.
