ISORA - Promoting the sport of Offshore Racing in the Irish Sea
The Association is run by volunteers for the benefit of competitors by working in partnership with boat owners, crew, yacht and sailing clubs, other associations and the governing bodies for boating in Ireland, Wales and the UK.
The ISORA 2020 AGM was held on Saturday 7th November 2020. This was a Virtual Meeting by Zoom (provided by Pwllheli Sailing Club).
In addition to the usual AGM business the Officers and Committee members for 2021 were elected - see here
A draft 2020 race schedule was proposed by the Technical Committee and it was agreed that this would form the basis of the time table for 2021.
The schedule was split into three elements , the Offshore Series for the Wolf's Head Trophy, three Coastal Series in Ireland and a Coastal series in Wales.
The latest version of the schedule will be published here shortly .......
There is a very useful section on the ISORA web page on 'Safety Considerations and Supporting Documents' - please check it out and become familiar with the requirements for offshore racing.
