ISORA Video Captures J109 Sailing Offshore

#isora – It's always 'darkest before the dawn' the song goes on this onboard video from last weekend's 'frustrating but enjoyableISORA offshore weekend. An exhuasting overnight race from Holyhead to the Isle of Man in fickle conditions bore out the meaning of the Florence and the Machine lyrics with competitors in the 20–boat fleet taking many hours to get to Douglas after daybreak. The vid was shot by Shay Fennessy, one of the crew on Wakey Wakey, a J109 that competed in the weekend's Holyhead-IOM-Dun Laoghaire ISORA races. More on the ISORA weekend here
