A great ISORA fleet has massed in Liverpool Marina, just upriver from the Lyver Building and the Albert Dock for tonight's Midnight Races.
The 30 strong fleet (downloadable below) is now set up for this evening’s start (at 19.30 hrs) of the classic Liverpool YC Midnight Race to Douglas Ise of Man. This is the seventh race in the ISORA 2018 series.
After finishing the race in Douglas, the crews will then prepare for a return race on Sunday morning from Douglas to a gate finish in the middle of the Irish Sea (this is race eight in the series).
Both races can be seen live on the ISORA YB Trackers here. Sailing Instructions are downloadable below.
The season is hotting up in the 53 boat ISORA fleet following the two coastal races last weekend.
The next two races are this weekend as follows:
Race 7 - Liverpool to Douglas IOM - Midnight Race Friday Night 8th June
The race starts at 19.30 BST Friday 8th June
Course to be decided later today – either Course 1 or Course 2.
The finish line in Douglas is from a light at the pier end to the extremity of the Bay Head on the other side of the bay.
Race 8 - Douglas IOM to Finish Gate (Mid Irish Sea) Sunday 10th June
This is the “Mid Sea Race” and will start at 08.45 BST Sunday 10th June from a line at Douglas head lighthouse and end at a gate in the middle of the Irish Sea. This is made possible with the use of a virtual finish line using the ISORA YB Trackers.
