Post by DominicWhite » Tue Jan 20, 2015 12:42 pm

The 2015 Tekmos Round the Island Race will start at Ramsey, Isle of Man on Sunday May 3rd at 1030 BST. HW is at 1150 BST.

The Round the Island Yacht Race is run annually by the Manx Sailing and Cruising Club in Ramsey, Isle of Man. We would like to thank our new sponsor, Tekmos Communications Ltd for making this event possible. 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 1030 start time will mean that some competitors will have to contend with night-time sailing, but there should be spectacular views to spectators at the start in Ramsey Bay, from the Point of Ayre around 1100 onwards), and from many viewpoints along the South and East coasts back to the finish off Ramsey Harbour. Racing will be governed by the current ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing with RYA and MS&CC prescriptions. The Race is Category C for advertising and there will be a £20.00 Entry Fee for all entrants. (£25.00 for entries received after Monday April 27th). Downloads: Entry form 2015 / Notice of Race 2015
Classes will be as follows:

Div. 1 IRC:- Classes 1A and 1B (provisional split 0.943 / 0.942) – The Ramsey Town Trophy and other famous prizes; Div. 2 PY:- Classes 2A, 2B and 2C (provisional splits 0.921 / 0.920 – 0.850 / 0.849) – The Coronation Cup and further famous prizes; Div. 3 Multihulls (PY):- Class 3 – The Corrin Trophy

One design prizes will be awarded for:
• Sigma 33 OOD (with valid certificates);
• First Class 8;
• Any other Class of 3 or more one-design yachts.

Other prizes for bilge keel yachts, line honours, best squadron and best overall under PY. The Race Committee will award PY handicaps as required and determine class splits. PY yachts need not hold handicap certificates. IRC Yachts must present valid Certificates and comply with ORC Category 3 or minimum SSS number of 20. Equivalent safety standards will be required for all other entrants. MS&CC and our sponsors Tekmos Communications Ltd look forward to welcoming another strong fleet.
