Sir Ben Ainslie issues 'call to arms' for Round the Island Race 01 May 2014

Olympic hero Sir Ben Ainslie has issued a ?call to arms? to seasoned sailors and landlubbers alike ahead of this year?s Round the Island Race.
Sir Ben, the world’s greatest ever Olympic sailor, described the world renowned 50-mile sprint around the Isle of Wight as an ?amazing experience? ? and urged anyone who can to join the 16,000 competitors who will be racing this year.
This year?s event, held on June 21, is the 83rd since it was first held in 1931 with a fleet of just 25 boats. Well over a thousand boats are expected to take part this year turning the Solent into a spectacle of colour.
Four time gold medallist & America’s Cup champion Sir Ben said: ?I?ll be racing as always and I?m really looking forward to it. It?s a unique event and every year the numbers just seem to go up and up ? this year it?s looking like there will be 16,000 people taking part. It?s a fantastic race which is guaranteed to always be different thanks to the weather.?
Last year was an amazing race for Sir Ben and his crew who blitzed round the course, starting and finishing in Cowes, in a record two hours, 52 minutes and 15 seconds. Ainslie adds ?The thing that makes the race so special is the inclusivity of it. You?ve got hardened professionals racing against people who may never have been sailing before. Thanks to the handicap system you can be out there on any size boat and stand a chance of winning. It?s a lot of fun whether you?re a sailor or a non-sailor and it?s a real achievement to get around the course. It?s something everyone should do once in their lives?

So will you be part of it???

We’d love to hear from you and help you organise your partiicipation in this extraordinary event.
