The 'Hugo Boss' entry in the JPMorgan Asset Management round the Island yacht race that took place on the 19th June and starts and finishes at the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes and stretches 63.3 miles entices some 16,000 competitors from all around the globe.
This photograph was taken at Totland Bay with the large mast of the Hugo Boss entry dwarfing the others.
Hurst Castle near Lymington can be seen in the background.
Many of the entrants are professional and amateur sailors who also included some very unlikely celebrities all trying to get past the winning line in 1st place.
