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.

Jerry Colman won the Ramsey Town Cup for a seventh time on Sunday in the 63rd IOM Copiers Round The Island Race, run by the Manx Sailing & Cruising Club.

Colman in his Sigma 33, Sea Pie of Cultra narrowly fended off the challenge of the Sydney 36, Tan-it, skippered by James Walker, by a mere two minutes on adjusted time. Tan-it crossed the line first on elapsed time at 3.15pm, with Sea Pie coming in an hour later.  Click here for the full write-up - IOM Copiers Round the Island Race 2017

The weather forecast did not bode well for the 61st IOM Copiers Round The Island Yacht Race, run by the Manx Sailing & Cruising Club.  UK weather websites were predicting gales for the race on Sunday, and given the forecasts some skippers decided not to sail.  In the event the local Met Office, with its forecast for a bit less wind strength, proved the more accurate.  Click on this link for the full write-up - IOM Copiers Round the Island 2016
