The Island is accessible by both sea and air. As many competitors will be arriving with their boat in tow, ferry sailings leave from Heysham & Liverpool in the UK and from Dublin and Belfast if arriving from Ireland. The Island only has one ferry operator, the Isle of Man Steam Packet,

Bookings must be made through Steam Packet Holidays, please call the team on 01624 645777 or email and quote 'Isle of Man Yacht Event'.

Sailings Available from Dublin 10.45 (23/07) out Return Belfast 19:30 (29/07) - Sailings available from the UK daily either Heysham or Liverpool. Please consider that the landing stage at liverpool is tight and therefor the best option will be Heysham, when Towing.

For those travelling from Ireland, the ferry times will be:

Due to the timing of the event, it is strongly recommended that you book your ferries early.

Those wishing to travel by air will note that Easyjet, Loganair and Aer Lingus provide services to Ronaldsway airport which is located approximately six miles from the club house.



There are a number of accommodation options around Port St. Mary and a link to those options can be found in the attached documents. It is again, highly recommended that you book early as we have been made aware that spaces are filling up fast (not necessarily for the sailing)
