Head to the Sprint 15 in May

Visitors to the Isle of Wight next month might like to head along to the annual Sprint 15 Catamaran National Sailing Event that is set to take place in Sandown.

Held on May 17th and 18th at the Yaverland Sailing and Boat Club, the fixture will see some of the best catamaran pilots from around the world battling it out to be crowned this year's champion.

Events will start at 10:00 BST each day, with all entrants taking to the waters in the Sprint 15 - formerly the Dart 15 - which was created by acclaimed designer Rodney March in 1979.

A 4.54 m hull with 6.7 m mast, the catamaran has been designed specifically for racing and is both highly manoeuvrable and fast in the water.

Meanwhile, island visitors of a nautical persuasion might also like to check out the annual JP Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race, which is set to take place on June 1st.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801568782-ADNFCR
