The Round the Island Race is an annual yacht race around the Isle of Wight. It starts and finishes in Cowes, and is organised by the Island Sailing Club. The course is about 50 nautical miles long. The race was first held in 1931 and since 2005 it has been sponsored by JP Morgan Asset Management. The race regularly attracts over 1,700 boats and around 16,000 sailors, amateur and professional, making it one of the largest yacht races in the world and the fourth largest participation sporting event in the UK after the London Marathon.This year the MOD70 trimaran Concise 10 took line honours, finishing at 1040, with an elapsed time of three hours, 30 minutes and 24 seconds. This puts her 38 minutes outside the multihull race record set by Sir Ben Ainslie in 2013.
