Did you spot the 28 boat sailing past the Isle of Wight on Sunday? They started from Cowes and are racing around Britain and Ireland this week.
Cowes is home to one of the most famous sailing regattas in the World, Cowes Week, so it’s little wonder readers have a keen interest in the sport of sailing.
With the many sailing clubs around the Wight, Islanders prove that it’s a ‘sport for all’ and not just those with the means. Here you’ll find all news relating to the sport and leisure activity of sailing.
Spare a thought from noon on Sunday for the 30 entries taking part in one of the toughest yacht races ever - the Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race - as it leaves Cowes and heads clockwise around the Isle of Wight in the first stage of this record-breaking race.
There are less than two weeks until the Round the Island Race, which already has 1,178 entries.
