Round the Island Race 2020


Saturday 26th September 2020 - ***New Date***


Isle of Wight

***    Please note that the Round the Island Race has been officially resheduled for Saturday 26th September 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. More information can be found by visiting the RTI website by clicking here. ***


Every year, for the last eight years, the King's School has chartered 3 boats in the Round the Island Race. One for parents, one for pupils and one for OKS. 

The Round the Island Race is the biggest yacht race in the world. Within the race, the three King's boats compete for the 597 trophy. The OKS boat has won three times, and last year, drew against the pupil boat.

We are looking for OKS of all sailing abilities to join the OKS boat! 


The charge is £475 per head, which includes yacht charter, professional Yachtmaster, race entry charge, berthing at Cowes, insurance and meals at two premier Cowes Yacht Clubs on the Friday and Saturday evenings.
