Founded by Sir Max Aitken this annual race is usually held on the August Bank Holiday weekend. Around 40 world class racing powerboats depart Cowes for Torquay then back to Cowes. The fastest boats can complete the course in less than 4 hours.
The Cowes to Torquay to Cowes is one of the world’s first powerboat races and regarded as one of the toughest.
