With only one more event remaining in the Allen Endurance Series, it's still all to play for.

Now in its second year, the 2019 edition of the Allen Endurance Series has been well attended at all 3 of the events so far this season. A total of 93 boats have taken up the challenge to win the £500 overall Allen voucher with more new entries expected for the final event, The IOS Round The Island Race, where there will be another £100 voucher for the race winner.

Simon Northrop sailing his F18 has already taken home two of the £100 event winning vouchers and is looking good to take the overall win. However, It's still all to play for as the series does not include any discards.

The final round of the Allen Endurance Series is taking place on the weekend of the 31st / 1st September. The IOS Round The Island Race is a long-established, long-distance event designed to test sailing skills and endurance over a 40-mile course. Sailed clockwise around the island, starting and finishing at IOS Sailing Club, the race includes tidal sea, river & estuary sailing. The event is one of the longest dinghy and board races in Europe. The race is open to all classes of dinghy, catamaran and sailboard.
