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!

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
