Royal Southern to be the Hamble Hub for the J.P. Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race
The Royal Southern YC is pleased to announce we have agreed to act as a 'Hub Club' for the Island Sailing Club, organisers of the J.P. Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race; along with the Royal Lymington YC.
This bold initiative, to extend the reach and excitement of the Race 'in situ' to these two mainland yacht clubs, has resulted from some competitors commenting that they were unable to be in Cowes after the Race but were nonetheless keen to be part of the pre and après Race events.
