Isle of Wight holiday could feature sailing race

Sailing enthusiasts visiting the Isle of Wight this month will be able to take part in a race around the island.

The 50-mile Round the Isle of Wight Solo (RIOW Solo) race will get underway at Egypt Point in Cowes on April 24th 2010.

Sailors will race anti-clockwise around the Isle of Wight in mono-hull and multi-hull yachts.

Entrants will be restricted to boats between 25 feet and 40 feet in length, while there will also be a special class for Class Mini 6.50s.

It will be the sixth edition of the RIOW Solo and this year's event will form the first leg of the 2010 four-race Solent Solo Series.

Organisers Solo Offshore Racing Club stated that the event is a good opportunity for people who are relatively new to sailing to try their hand at a race event.

This comes after it was recently announced that the Extreme Sailing Series event will be returning to the Isle of Wight for Cowes Week later this year. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19723258-ADNFCR
