ROUND THE ISLAND RACE
Saturday 3rd July 2021
Anarchy Sailing invites you to join us for the ever popular
Round the Island Race
One of the biggest fleets of yachts any where in the world. As many as
1800 yachts of all shapes & sizes pitting their wits against their rivals and the
tricky tides around the stunning Isle of Wight.
Friday is training day. Late start but we will get on the water and teach you what does what and hopefully slick enough to throw a spinnaker blindfolded. Ok just up with two eyes open.. oh and of course down again.
Saturday is race day. So easy on the beer Friday night as it will be an early start. We head west to the Needles, typically a beat, then around the Needles and a kite hoist. Can sometimes hold the kite all the way to Bembridge where we will find the tide against us and a beat to the finish.
Now you can start necking the beer.
You are welcome to stay on the boat and get up when you want on Sunday.
Cant remember how many times we have done this race. Still love it.
CREW HOUSE OPTION AVAILABLE

No experience is required as a good proportion of the crew will have the necessary skill levels to allow us to complete a safe passage.
However you do need to be physically fit. We don't mean like a pro or even a weekend jogger. Just a good standard of well being.
Sailing requires physical effort so you got to be able to move around, pull on ropes (we don't call them ropes).
In return for your given experience level we will do our best to expand that for you.
We don't treat our crew as rail meat.
Even if you only sign up for one race you have joined the Anarchy Family. WE ARE A TEAM
HOW TO BOOK
Well as you are reading this you must have a Computer, Tablet or a Smartphone or some magical device we are oblivious too.
So given your a tech wizard try one of these:
We genuinely discourage the use of Semaphore (waving flags around), morse code by lamp or telegraph, Smoke Signals, Chinese Whispers or "my mates ask me to ask you"
Or use our carefully grafted form below and we will get back to you.
By the nature of our business we are often on the water and don't man a full time office. Once about 5-10 miles offshore telephone signal is at best poor.
We therefore can't always provide an immediate response but we do promise to get back to you. We want your custom.
MORE UK BASED EVENTS
Anarchy Sailing is about fun first.
That said we love to race and we love to beat our rivals.
Each year we invest more into our yachts.
Sails, sail configuration to optimise performance against rating.
Smoother hull, new electronics and all kit replace when needed including halyards, sheets etc.
We will always present the yacht in the best possible condition so there are no excuses on the water.
Ultimately we are a TEAM and regardless of your previous experience you will become a key member of the TEAM.
