By | February 7, 2019

MS Amlin Yacht, the boat insurance specialists, is delighted to announce its continued partnership with The Round the Island Race in 2019.  As official insurance partners, MS Amlin will extend racing cover to all their policy holders competing in the race at no additional cost.

Having sponsored the race for the 17th consecutive year, MS Amlin is one of the longest standing sponsors, fully understanding how much the whole boating community enjoy getting involved in, or watching this key annual event.

Paul Knox Johnston, Business Development Manager at MS Amlin comments: “As always the team is excited about partnering with The Round the Island Race and we are all looking forward to being out on the water.  It is great that so many like-minded sailors can come together from around the world to compete in this historic race, which still stands true to the original vision of Major Cyril Windeler back in 1930.  From the smallest day boats to the fastest multi-hulls, the handicap system allows everyone to race on a level playing field and we feel that this adds so much to the popularity of the event.  You do not need to be a hardened racer to join in.”

The 2019 race will be held on Saturday 29th June and it regularly attracts over 1400 boats and 15000 sailors.  The first start on the 50 nautical mile course will be at 06.30, from which point professional sailors will compete against families and first time racers for one of the nearly 200 prizes to be awarded.  The Round the Island Race is a unique spectacle in challenging waters and we look forward to seeing you out there.
