Isle of Wight holiday could feature sailing race

People taking Isle of Wight holidays next month may be able to catch the start of a sailing race as part of their break on the island.

The 2010 Cervantes Trophy Race will begin at Cowes on the Isle of Wight on May 1st 2010.

Sailors will race from Cowes to Le Havre in France, with boats from countries as diverse as Germany, Belgium and Poland set to compete alongside British entrants.

The Cervantes Trophy Race forms part of the annual Season's Points Championship from the Royal Ocean Racing Club, with the Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race taking place later in the year.

People on Isle of Wight holidays may wish to get up early for the race, with the first warning signal to be let off at 7.50am.

It is sure to be a fine sight for spectators, who can enjoy a wide variety of sailing events on Isle of Wight holidays this summer.

Cowes Week will arguably take centre stage, with the event running from July 31st through to August 7th 2010. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19730592-ADNFCR
