ISORA 2015

The offshore racing in the Irish Sea just gets better and by working in partnership with our supporting clubs a great series of races has been designed for 2015 to provide something for everyone’s taste.
We have shorter offshore day and night races on both sides of the Irish Sea. A series of traditional ISORA races and we have also combined with classic races including the Liverpool Yacht Club Lyver Trophy race, in association with Royal Dee Yacht Club and RORC, and the D2D Dún Laoghaire to Dingle 270 mile race.
All races are standalone races with good competition for IRC Class 1 and Class 2 boats. We also cater for the cruiser yachts in the keenly contested Silver Fleet and for the brave a two handed class.
