The most accomplished and recognised names in British, if not global yachting circles, are all racing around the Isle of Wight on Saturday 1st June in Britain’s favourite yacht race, the annual J.P. Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race.
Celebrity sailors include
- Sir Ben Ainslie
- Sir Robin Knox-Johnston
- Dame Ellen MacArthur
- Dee Caffari MBE
- Helena Lucas MBE
- Alex Thomson
- Mike Golding
These top sailors will be joined by up to 16,000 others arriving in Cowes from all over the world by boat, plane, train, ferry and Red Jet, all hoping to make this the best day’s racing this year.
Organisers and competitors alike have started counting down the days in preparation, but not everyone can compete.
If you’re not competing, how would you like to be the Race Starter for the largest yacht race of its kind in the world on June 1st?
