ISORA has published its 2017 offshore racing programme featuring a mixture of coastal and offshore races, on both sides of the Irish Sea.

The race series has been devised to incorporate feeder races to regattas such as the IRC Welsh National Championships at Pwllheli in August (www.ircwelshchamps.com) and the ever popular Lyver race (a RORC Fastnet qualifier) which both feeds the 2017 Dun Laoghaire Regatta (www.dlregatta.org) and forms part of the regatta offshore championship. Also included is the iconic and popular D2D race from Dun Laoghaire.

ISORA Chairman Peter Ryan commented that the programme was designed to attract both experienced and new offshore racers, with races designed to fit around the regattas on both side of the Irish Sea.

The full programme and further information is available at www.isora.org
