WIORA 2011 Preview
July 13th - 16th 2011. Four days and seven races, in IRC and ECHO 1, 2, 3 and White Sails classes, is the menu for excitement in Clifden this year. Last hosted by this club in 2007, when the West of Ireland Offshore Racing Association (WIORA) West Coast Championships was the largest sailing meeting on the West Coast that year, the competition is keen, the sailing demanding and the shore-side atmosphere electric.

This is the third time that the West Coast Championship's will be hosted by Clifden Boat Club. On July13th, Clifden Bay will be alive once again with yachts from the length of the west coast, and beyond, and organisers promise the great festival feeling that always accompanies this prestigious event.

The crew at Clifden Boat Club are working hard to ensure that this event is everything that it can be. Alan Crosbie, one of Ireland's most renowned race officers, will receive a very warm welcome as he returns for his eighth West Coast Championships.

Whether you are a competitor or a spectator, it's definitely worth making the journey from wherever you are, to join in on the thrill and excitement of it all.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
