The overall ISORA series was won for the second successive year by Peter Dunlop and Vicki Cox's J109 "Mojito" and she also took the spoils in IRC 1. Second overall was Chris Power-Smith's J122 "Aurelia" who also won IRC 0.

1st overall in IRC 2 was Denis Power's & Lindsay Casey's J97 "Windjammer".

So the overall winner, all three class winners and most of the podium places were taken by boats flying North Sails.

All three flew 3Di upwind sails and V-Series downwind sails.

ISORA races are tough and the series is a marathon, not a sprint. It places a premium on both consistent offshore speed but also reliability. We are delighted to see our clients winning offshore using our 3Di upwind technology and V-Series downwind sails.

Congratulations to everyone in the ISORA community and roll on 2019!

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
