The annual ISORA AGM will be held in the NYC at 15.00 on Saturday 16th November, same day as the dinner.
One of the main items on the agenda that will be circulated alter is the race schedule for 2014. To try and keep the meeting focussed and as short as possible I would welcome any suggestions for races in 2014. Next year is the Round Ireland race. While it is not proposed to include this race in the ISORA schedule (subject to AGM), it brings renewed interest in offshore racing every two years.
Conwy are keen to host a race start on the 10th May. The response to the IOM race last year was huge. Arklow is also a keen location. Greystones is also a new venue. In Dublin Bay there are four week of regatta races. Pwllheli / Abersoch will be hosting an IRC event in August? Skerries have expressed and interest. Our normal venues are Dun Laoghaire, Howth, Wicklow, Holyhead and Pwllheli.
I would also welcome some suggestions on the marks we use. The virtual marks have not been utilised fully but with the Predict Wind tracker app used properly we could nominate a waypoint on the day for rounding?
I would welcome any suggestions for race starts and finishes. Based on the response I will produce a draft schedule for discussion at the AGM.
I look forward to receiving your feedback ASAP.
I look forward to seeing a good attendance at the AGM.
