Liam Shanahan’s “Ruth” Retains ISORA Avery Crest Offshore Championship for 2015

The last race of the ISORA Avery Crest Offshore series that was sponsored by LC Tyres, took place on Saturday 12th September with the race from Pwllheli to Dun Laoghaire (74 miles). The boats compete for the famous “James Eadie” trophy. As like the same race last season, the weather forecast for the race and particularly the delivery to Pwllheli was not favourable all week. This put off many of taking part in what is normally a well supported end of season race…

All down to the last race to decide on ISORA Overalls 2015!

The ISORA Wolf’s Head Trophy  2015 for 1st overall in the Irish Sea Offshore Racing Association series of 12 races will be decided today by the results of the Pwllheli to Dun Laoghaire race!

It’s down to the wire for Liam Shanahan’s  ‘J09 Ruth’ from NYC and Andrew Hall’s ‘Jackknife’ from Pwllheli Sailing!

Ruth overall winners of the D2D 2015!

Congratulations to all on-board NYC J109 ‘Ruth’ for their overall win in the 2015 Skellig Hotel Dun Laoghaire to Dingle Race.

‘Ruth’ narrowly missed the overall win of the 2014 Round Ireland Race by just over 6mns but, victory was not let go off their hands this time around!
