New sponsor for Round the Island Race

A new sponsor has been unveiled by the organisers of the annual JP Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race, which takes place off the coast of the Isle of Wight.

Small Luxury Hotels of the World has teamed up with the event, becoming the ninth and final sponsor of the race.

Paul Kerr, chief executive officer of the company, stated that the 80th anniversary of the Round the Island Race seemed to be a good time to join forces with the race for the first time.

"Last year I competed in the race and enjoyed it hugely - it is truly a great spectacle and one of the most exciting events in the worldwide sporting calendar," he said.

Mr Kerr added that he wants to wish all the competitors for the 2011 event - which gets underway on June 25th - the best of luck.

Earlier this month, the organisers of the Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race announced that Henri Lloyd is to be the event's official sponsor for the 2011 and 2012 races.
