Round the Island Race Live Stage Leaderboard © ISC

This year, competitors in the IRC or ISCRS (Island Sailing Club Rating System) fleets will be able to access a new LIVE Stage Leaderboard, which will show the boat's fleet position on handicap after each of the main race stages:

Stage 1: START to The Needles
Stage 2: The Needles to St Catherine's Lighthouse
Stage 3: St Catherine's Lighthouse to Bembridge Ledge
Stage 4: Bembridge Ledge to the FINISH

Accessible onboard during the race, the new LIVE Stage Leaderboard will give skippers and crew a fun and useful tool to track progress and find out how you're doing against your rivals. The Island Sailing Club will be awarding Robert Oatley Wine Magnums for the crew that shows the most improved performance for each stage!

For more information please visit the dedicated LIVE Stage Leaderboard page on the race event website here.

ISCRS: The Island Sailing Club offers this rating system for FREE to boats without current IRC rating certificates, more info here.
