IOM Copiers Round the Island 2018

The 2018 IOM Copiers Round the Island Race will start in Ramsey Bay on Sunday 8th July at 0615 BST. The Round the Island Yacht Race is run annually by the Manx Sailing and Cruising Club in Ramsey, Isle of Man and we would like to thank Mark Corrin of IOM Copiers for agreeing to sponsor the 2018 event.

A splendid array of trophies is available to be won, the most prestigious being the Coronation Cup, first awarded in 1953 and the Ramsey Town Trophy dating from just a little later. The 0615 start time should mean that most competitors will not have to contend with night-time sailing this year. For the early risers there should be great views at the start in Ramsey Bay and from the Point of Ayre around 0700 onwards and from many viewpoints along the West, South and East coasts back to the finish off Ramsey Harbour.

MS&CC Dinghy Regatta

A calm sea!!

Well unfortunately the weather didn’t play ball this weekend!  One race was run on Saturday and won by Russell & June Callister, but then the wind died and the dinghies returned to the shore.

Sunday proved even quieter, the Committee Boat went out to try and locate some wind in Ramsey Bay but apart from the odd gust of 4 to 6 knots there was just not enough to make it worth the waiting sailors rigging their boats.

What a difference a month makes, the IOM Copiers Easter Regatta that was postponed from Easter Saturday due to poor weather finally took place this weekend in Ramsey Bay.  The strong easterly winds (surf on the beach) and low temperatures were replaced by gentle breezes and bright sunshine.

A reminder of the conditions last year>

A reminder of the conditions last year!

So we realise Easter has come and gone but unfortunately the conditions in Ramsey Bay on Easter Saturday were particularly lively due to the north easterly wind.  We therefore decided to postpone it to a later date in the hope that the weather would have improved – fingers crossed we’ve picked the right weekend!!

This is a One Day Event with three races to be held “back to back”, with racing starting at 10:30 and expected to be fully completed at 14:00 - IOM Copiers Easter Regatta 2018-Sailing Instructions

There will be a Prize Presentation directly afterwards and will be followed by a complimentary Regatta Tea for all competitors, race officials, family, friends and social members.

As it’s part of the ‘Traveller Series’ it is hoped that this Regatta Event will be fully supported, Competitors of all ages and capabilities are welcome!
