Shirley joins triple gold and silver Olympic medallist Ben Ainslie for the J.P. Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race.

This 80th edition of the race was dominated by the weather, a record breaking fleet of 1900 + boats with more than 16,000 sailors faced winds of up to 28 knots and huge swells which made the 60 mile course a wet and wild ride.

Watch all the action here, including onboard with Ben Ainslie, the Ellen MacArthur Trust and 3 generations of the Rogers family – 3 very different race experiences.
