The COurse

A classic race course for the South Coast of England – the course that started what is now ‘The America’s Cup’ in 1851. The course can be made in either direction, starting and finishing from the iconic Royal Yacht Squadron Line, the full loop around the Isle of Wight takes in the famous white chalk cliffs and the amazing sight of The Needles. Very tidally constrained, a record attempt requires meticulous planning of the start time to make best use of the strong currents. The course must enclose the Isle of Wight in either direction, passing the Needles Light house, St Catherine’s Point and passing to the E of Bembridge Ledge Buoy
