There are six proposed starters for Saturday's first ISORA race since June's big offshore Dun Laoghaire Dingle Race including the 2021 Irish Sea Coastal Champion Rockabill VI (Paul O'Higgins of the Royal Irish Yacht Club).

The 64-mile course will see the fleet head out of the bay leaving the Muglins to Starboard, then to North India (P), Taylors Rock (P), (Lambay is NOT a mark on the course), ISORA Dublin (S) and a finish between Dun Laoghaire Pier Heads.

Meanwhile, Lyver Race (ISORA) from Liverpool to Pwllheli also has a six-boat fleet mustered for it Friday evening start on the other side of the Irish Sea.
