21 Confirmed for ISORA's First Race of 2011

29th April 2011
21 Confirmed for ISORA's First Race of 2011

Offshore racing continues its comeback and the first sign of renewal comes tomorrow morning on Dublin Bay when 21 boats muster for the first race of the Irish Sea Offshore Racing Association (ISORA) from Dun Laoghaire to Holyhead. It's all a far cry from just three years ago years when the domestic offshore fleet here dwindled to such an extent that in 2007, ISORA was ready to fold.

The 21-boat entry list for tomorrow morning's first ISORA race to Holyhead has been issued and commodore Peter Ryan warns there may well be a change of course for the 57-miler.
