Paul O'Higgin's JPK10.80 Rockabill VI from the Royal Irish Yacht Club was the IRC winner of ISORA's race eight over a 64-mile course off Dublin Bay yesterday with Chris Power Smith's corinthian crew on the J122 Aurelia taking line honours at Dun Laoghaire yesterday evening.

A much reduced but nevertheless strong fleet of five boats contested the race, the first since last month's Dun Laoghaire Dingle Race

The ISORA fleet is recovering from an intensive June that saw some of the boats also contest Kinsale's Sovereign's Cup.

The 64-mile course saw the fleet head out of the bay at 8 am leaving the Muglins to Starboard, then to North India (P), Taylors Rock (P), (Lambay was NOT a mark on the course), ISORA Dublin (S) and a finish between Dun Laoghaire Pier Heads that evening at 6 pm.

The reigning Irish Sea Coastal Champion Rockabill VI (Paul O'Higgins of the Royal Irish Yacht Club) got the upper hand on second-placed J122 Aurelia with the Sunfast 3600 Hot Cookie in third place.
