NORA 2013 - Event Format


Following on from the great success of the 2012 Malinwater Series / NORA Championship, the committee has looked at ways of improving the event further and streamlining in an attempt to attract visitors from further afield.

In 2013 the event will start in Killybegs Bay on the 3rd August with Inshore racing over two days for both Spinnaker and White Sail Fleets.  Individual courses will be aimed to give the most fun and competitive sailing to both fleets. On Saturday evening after racing there will be a party organised for all competitors and friends.  Monday will see our first of our two Coastal Races starting from Killybegs.

Both of the events Coastal races will score double points and be non discardable.  We are planning that one or possibly both of these will be run  "Pursuit Race" style.  This means the slowest boat will start first and be followed by the rest of the fleet in order of handicap to pursue each other to the finish line.

Wednesday the 7th August will see a full day of inshore racing in Mullaghmore Bay.  With Friday seeing the second of our Offshore Races to Sligo bay and our third venue Sligo Yacht Club.

The event will conclude with another day of inshore racing on Saturday the 10th August on Sligo Bay.  With a final prize giving and party on the Saturday night in the SYC Clubhouse.
