36 boats have entered the first ISORA Offshore race to take place next Saturday. The race will be approximately 60miles depending on the weather, starting in Holyhead and finishing in Dun Laoghaire.
Check out the Provisional Competitor list here This list shows all 2017 competitors with IRC and ECHO ratings.
The fleet is a great cross section, from classic to high tech and from small to large, demonstrating the range of boats that are interested in racing offshore. The newly adopted “ISORA Progressive ECHO” will ensure a greater spread of prizes for the race with prizes for six classes and trophy for Overall as well as the famous “Race Winners Jacket”.
The gathering of such a large numbers of boats and their crew in Holyhead on the Friday evening and again hopefully at the NYC on Saturday evening will generate a great social atmosphere.
At this time there are 34 boats entered for Race 4 on the 27th May. This offshore race is unique as it will start and finish on the Irish side – starting in Dun Laoghaire and finishing in a new port for ISORA, Arklow. We are looking forward to a great reception from Arklow Sailing Club.
