Isle of Wight sports
Residents on the Isle of Wight love their sport, it’s another one of those things that bring communities together. We published regular updates for cricket, sailing, speedway and football from local clubs.
If you have sports news to share, get in touch and we’ll share it with our wide readership.
Former Shanklinite Brian Silsbury, now living in Canada, takes a trip down memory lane and shares stories of his time rowing for Shanklin Sandown Rowing Club.

Following Musandam-Oman Sail breaking the World Record in the Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Yacht Race on Thursday, more World Records have been broken by other boats when they reached the finish line at the RYS, Cowes.
Congratulations to the crew on Oman Sail who smashed a World Record after sailing around Britain and Ireland in just three days and three hours. Watch out for others competing in the race passing the Island today.
