The Irish Sea Offshore Racing Association (ISORA) learnt with great sadness of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II earlier today and pass our sincere condolences to the Royal Family.
The Organising Authority have received requests for guidance from competitors on the status of the concluding race of the ISORA 2022 Series, the James Eadie Race scheduled for Saturday 10th September.
The OA had to take into consideration that competitors will travel from great distances to take part in this race and delivery times for competing yachts can be more than 15 hours.
It is not possible to set another date for this race so a postponement would necessitate a cancellation of the race.
The Organising Authority have listened to guidance and advice and have decided that it is in the best interest of the sport for the scheduled race from Pwllheli to Dun Laoghaire to continue.
As a mark of respect, competitors will fly a black flag above the class flag on the backstay.
