The fourth ISORA offshore race of the season will race from Dun Laoghaire to Pwllheli and not Holyhead as originally scheduled on Saturday, 26th May.
Skippers have already received the change of course after extensive discussions with Holyhead Sailing Club who are still dealing with the aftermath of the loss of the marina in Storm Emma.
ISORA Chair Peter Ryan told Afloat.ie: 'After deliberations by the sailing committee, it has been agreed that the least bad option we have is to change the finish to Pwllheli'.
'Please be assured, this decision was not taken likely' he added.
The devastation in Holyhead has had a significant impact on the ISORA 2018 schedule. The consequence for the committee now is not only to choose the course for each race but to choose a start and finish point too.
As Afloat.ie previously reported, Welsh Government funding will boost the Holyhead Marina clean-up so the hope is the normal racing calendar there can resume quickly.
