Round the Island Race to celebrate 80th birthday

Special plans are being made to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the JP Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race which takes place on the Isle of Wight annually.

Much of the promotion in the lead-up to the event is set to centre on its history, with previous competitors invited to share their stories and memories of the race.

"This could be a particularly amusing or nail-biting moment, a beautiful photograph, video footage or the tale of a personal triumph," noted the organisers of the event.

It was added that a panel including the Club's Admiral Robin Aisher will come together to judge the best entrant ahead of the JP Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race.

Ferry operator Red Funnel has also revealed it will be continuing its partnership with the Round the Island Race in the year it marks 150 years of taking people on their Isle of Wight holidays.

Electronics firm Raymarine recently revealed it is also a race partner for the 2011 event, which takes place on June 25th.
