Inshore Series Race 4 - RIOW (Round the Isle of Wight)

The re-shedules RIOW RACE, postponed due to Coronavirus restrictions, is to be held on Saturday 12th September.

The famous RIOW Race is a unique solo yacht race around the Isle of WIght. Always a keenly contested marathon, the vagaries of the wind and tides add to the already significant challenge of racing solo. This is the race every SORC skipper wants to win!

Where: The race will start and finish off Cowes after a circum-navigation of the Isle of Wight.

  • Prizes will be awarded for individual classes and overall
  • The overall winner on corrected time under IRC wins "The Anticipation Cup"
  • The first IRC boat on elapsed time wins the Watermark Trophy
  • There will be a prize for the first Rookie under IRC
  • Race Directors Discretionary Prize
Socials: Given the current Covid restrictions and implications, no formal socials are being organised.
Berthing: Some space is reserved in Cowes on the Friday and Saturday night at Shepherd Wharf Marina on a first come first served basis. However, you must book and pay for your berth with the marina direct and in advance. Mention SORC RALLY when booking.

There will be bottle prizes, the Anticipation Cup for the top boat on IRC, and the Watermark Trophy presented for line honours.


A Virtual Mark off the Needles will be set to stop any rock hopping or wreck dodging!!!
