Ireland Preparing For The Offshore Sailing Season

It looks like Ireland is looking to make it big at the offshore racing event this year as it has planned to bring out two separate transatlantic solo campaigns this season.

Ireland has done a very good job in 2016 in the Round Ireland Race as well as the Round Ireland speed records. They have done extremely well in the monohull and the multihull events. Ireland is looking for even greater achievements in the 2017 offshore sailing season. There is also an Irish Sea Offshore Racing Association fleet waiting in the wings.

There was a survey conducted by the Irish Sea Offshore Racing Association (ISORA) on behalf of Yacht Charter in Scotland, and the result of this is that 53 percent of the respondents to the survey out of the 115 responses said that they are regular offshore racers and 30 percent of the respondents said that they are regular coastal racers. This means there is a wealth of talent in the offshore sailing in Ireland. (more…)

World Sailing Show Events

There is a World Sailing Show that is held regularly and it is a monthly view for sailing enthusiasts, especially when it comes to knowing about the competitive sailing events across the world. In November the highlighted event was the Rolex Middle Sea race that covered about six hundred miles around the region of Sicily.

This race helped the fleet to experience the landscape like never before. They were able to witness backdrops to the waters that were stunning along with active volcanoes, headlands as well as water passages that were challenging for the boats. There was also a chance to win a holiday chartering in Croatia (more…)
