Round the Island Race 2012

July 01, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I flew down to Bembridge, Isle of Wight to watch the Round the Island race, where over 1,600 boats sail from Cowes all the way round the island. I was heading for The Needles but the weather looked grim so we landed at Bembridge and headed up Culver Down and watched the race from there.

Whilst there a Coast Guard helicopter and RNLI lifeboat attended an emergency where a sailor had broken their leg and so was transferred to the RNLI lifeboat and then to the helicopter, something you don't see everyday !

The weather cleared a bit more so we took to the skies again but were again unable to go around the Needles because a fog/mist had started to form around that end of the island so we headed towards Portsmouth and then home
