Rockabill VI takes second win in ISORA this year. 
Early on Saturday morning last Rockabill VI (Paul Higgins) took his second win of this year’s ISORA series.  23 boats came to the start line at 20:00 on Friday for the Night Coastal Race with a course of Muglins (S), Breaches Buoy (P), Muglins(P) finish between the pier heads. 

In very tricky wind condition and with a flooding tide for the first six hours. Aurelia (R.ST.G YC) took line honours after 5 hours 24 minutes of racing, followed six minutes later by Rockabill VI. On corrected time Rockabill VI won by 105 seconds. Royal Irish Boats filled four of the top ten places with Juggerknot 2 (Andrew Algeo) fourth, Wow (George Sisk) sixth and Black Velvet (Leslie Parnell) tenth.
 
Rockabill VI has taken up where she left off last season, leading the series with two wins and a third place so far.
Next up for ISORA is the first Offshore race of the season with an early 08:00 start for the Dun Laoghaire to Dun Laoghaire race on Saturday morning 1st August. See ISORA Race 4 news letter here.
