ISORA boss Peter Ryan has described next Saturday's training race as 'the last chance for skippers to ensure their crew are offshore battle-hardened and have recent offshore experience' before the Dun Laoghaire to Dingle Race on June 9th. 

Ryan has published the Sailing Instructions (downloadable below) and current entry list for a 50-mile offshore training next Saturday 29th May.

The start and finish lines will be located off Dun Laoghaire Harbour with a start time of 8 am.

As Afloat reported previously, four new boats are expected to join the 16-boat fleet listed by organisers below. Online entries are still open.

Ryan told Afloat, "I also expect Robert Rendell’s new Grand Soleil 44 and I'd be happy with a 20-boat fleet".

ISORA's first event of its “Viking Marine Coastal Series began on May 15th and it mustered a high powered IRC fleet of 13 for the 35-mile course.

ISORA is running this month's training series in advance of a return to competition on June 7th as sailing is now considered a safe, non-contact sport with no material difference between training and competition under COVID-19 guidelines.
