Round the Island photo exhibition comes to Isle of Wight

Those currently enjoying Isle of Wight holidays or heading to the destination shortly may be able to take in an installation focusing on the history of one of the island's most famous nautical events.

The West Gallery of the Quay Arts Centre is currently playing host to the Round the Island in 80 Years photographic exhibition, which is running until Saturday June 18th - so those wanting to catch the show may need to act quickly.

It has been created by JP Morgan Asset Management and aims to celebrate Round the Island's race history - a one-day event organised by the Island Sailing Club that attracts around 16,000 sailors.

The exhibit could be the ideal stop-off for those with an interest in both the island's heritage and the sailing contest itself.

Visitors will be able to catch a glimpse of images that date back to the event's very first race, which was held in 1931.
