The RNLI is proud to be named the Official Charity Partner of Round the Island Race for 2024. The annual race, this year on the 15th June 2024, is organised by the Island Sailing Club, is a one-day yacht race around the Isle of Wight. The race regularly attracts over 1,100 boats and around 6,000 sailors.

Safety of all the participants is integral to the smooth running of the race, and that’s why RNLI Lifeboats from Cowes, Calshot, Bembridge Yarmouth, Lymington, Mudeford and Portsmouth have been involved in the running of the event for decades and are strategically positioned around the course to support.

In 2024, the RNLIs 200th Anniversary, we are working with the Island Sailing club to raise funds to go towards the training costs at the stations involved in the 2024 race. On race day, and every other day of the year the crews lifesaving work is essential, often difficult and sometimes dangerous. And with only 1 in 10 volunteers joining the RNLI from a professional maritime occupation, training is especially important.
