Pip Hare to start ISC's 90th anniversary Round The Island Race
Published 13:18 on 20 May 2021
With over 800 entries to date, this year is set to be a very special celebration of the race's 90th anniversary. We are delighted to announce that Pip Hare will be starting the race and has accepted the Island Sailing Club's gift of honorary Club membership. Listen to Pip talking about why Round the Island is a race for everyone HERE and her favourite race memories HERE.
There are also £5,000 of prizes up for grabs in our 90th anniversary competition. Inspired by the Yachts & Yachting Editor who, in 1957, offered a prize of two guineas to the reader who could correctly identify the number of yachts in a picture of the becalmed start that year. To celebrate 90 years of Britain's favourite yacht race we're offering competitors and friends of the race a similar challenge.
