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.
