HYC – Lambay Race (TBA) Liffey Festival / RAYC
Howth - Lambay - Dublin Port

DublinPortCo Logo1Race 5 in the Averycrest ISORA Series 2017 will be unique. Originally it had been intended that ISORA would join with Howth YC in the Lambay Race but when the date of that race was brought forward it clashed with the ISORA race to finish in Dublin Port as part of the Dublin Port Riverfest. The solution was simple – combine the two races into one event and have two finishes!!

There will be a special “ISORA Class” in the HYC Lambay Race. Boats can enter both the ISORA Class of the Lambay Race and the ISORA Day Race. The start of both races will be provided by Howth YC and the course around Lambay will be set by HYC. The ISORA Class fleet will then proceed to the Lambay race finish off Howth where finish times will be recorded and prizes awarded. However, what is unique about this race is that the ISORA fleet will treat the finish line as a mark on the course and continue on the race toward the second finish in Dublin Port. The courses for both parts of this unique race will be circulated on the Thursday before the race.

This unique race will test the ability of the racing rules and the use of the YB trackers, but that is the challenge!!
