Round the Island Race

Saturday 29th June

The annual Round the Island Race, organised by the Island Sailing Club, is a one-day yacht race around the Isle of Wight.  The race regularly attracts over 1,400 boats and around 15,000 sailors, 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 and the Great North and South Runs.

Competitors come from all over the UK, other parts of Europe and as far away as the USA to follow the 50 nautical mile course round the Isle of Wight. Starting on the famous Royal Yacht Squadron line in Cowes, the fleet races westabout, to The Needles, round St Catherine’s Point and Bembridge Ledge buoy, and back into the Solent to the finish line at Cowes.

The George’s garden has a great view as the boats pass us coming from Cowes heading onto The Needles.

Completely delicious!

We visited the George for the second time this weekend and can’t rave enough about the improvements. We were given a light and airy room with a balcony overlooking the sea, comfy bed, luxury bathroom with huge shower and super clean.

Completely delicious! We visited the George for the second time this weekend and can’t rave enough about the improvements. We were given a light and airy room with a balcony overlooking the sea, comfy bed, luxury bathroom with huge shower and super clean. The best surprise was the improvement in the food, there’s a new chef and you could really tell. I ate the smoked haddock carpaccio with pea to start, fresh, tangy and simply delicious! I ate muscles and spinach gratin, also delicious! However the truffle chips were worth visiting for alone, I’ll be back for them!
Perfect lunch setting: beautiful outdoor space on the shore & great service

I’m so glad we stopped here for lunch, as it is a truly stunning space. The most relaxing setting to rejuvenate on our day-trip, made all the more wonderful with delightful staff and scrumptious food.

We all had the roast of the day, it was delicious and well presented. The wine was very good too ! Will be returning very soon.
Can't rate this place highly enough, the food here was the nicest I've tasted in a while.
