This is something on my sailing calendar that I am really looking forward too, might mean a silly early start from Lymington, but is definitely one of the highlight events of the sailing calendar this year.
Simply the JP Morgan Round the Island Race is a race round the Isle of Wight, but with over 1000 boats entered its always going to be a bit of a bun fight! But where in the world and in what sport can you go out and compete with World Champions, Olympic Champions, the leading personalities in that sport and the odd celebrity?
Here is a quick video from the event in 2008, some pretty interesting facts on here.
The Needles is always a good spot to watch the fleet, great shots on the video below from last year.
Here is a nice video from 2010
