Well I think this probably is worth looking at.
A couple of Ospreys sailed from Lymington to Alderney
and back again last weekend.
See the photos and route ........

I believe Clevedon S.C. have a Channel race which involves rounding the island.

The reservoir I sail on is on an island formed by rivers on all three sides. Topologically speaking then the island is (if I understand this stuff correctly, which admittedly is unlikely) an irregular Torus, and therefore we are sailing round the *inside* of the island every race...

I did the Round Sheppey three years ago - it was great fun and I'd thoroughly recommended it.

I am sure that there is forumites at the clubs concerned who can correct me if I am wrong.

Tenby Regatta 10th & 11th of July including the Round Caldey Island Race
 

Anglesey Offshore Dinghy Race 22rd August 2010 10 Am

I believe the dates are correct for these the first race is about 15 - 20 miles i think ( think I read that somewhere ) & the second race off Anglesey is again long distance appox 15 miles?

The Blackwater Sailing Club hosts the RTI's, a race around Osea and Northey Islands in a figure 8, with 2 causeways to cross you have to watch your centre board and rudder.....the topper and mirror classes just go round Northey.  takes place on July 25th and is in aid of the RNLI, starts at 11.30

Yup, I was definately thinking of adventure rather than trying to come in the top 20 (not bloomin likely).

My main concern was a light wind meaning the jaunt could take 10 hours (as the race website mentions). I enjoy light wind racing, but not on a 40 mile course....
