The Promarine RIOW Race

Event Date: 19 Jul 2021 - 1 days

Inshore Series Race 4 - Promarine RIOW (Round the Isle of Wight) on Saturday 17th July

The famous RIOW Race is this year sponsored by PROMARINE FINANCE.

Saturday 17th July

A unique solo yacht race, with a Double Handed class for the first time, around the Isle of WIght. Always keenly contested and usually SORC's best attended challenge. The vagaries of the wind and tides add to the already significant test of racing solo or double handed. This is the race every SORC skipper wants to win!

The race will start and finish off Cowes after a circum-navigation of the Isle of Wight. East or Westabout TBA.

  • Prizes will be awarded for individual classes and overall

  • The overall solo winner on corrected time under IRC wins "The Anticipation Cup"

  • The first solo IRC boat on elapsed time wins the Watermark Trophy

  • There will be a prize for the first solo Rookie under IRC

  • Race Directors Discretionary Prize

Socials: A prize giving will be held in a marquis at the Island Sailing Club and dinner spaces are available.

Berthing: Spaces are at present available at Shepherds Marina, but they will not be held indefinitely. Skippers need to contact Shepherds direct to book a berth. 





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