The SCORA 2012 programme returns to its more traditional format this season. The Jim Donegan Offshore Championship (IRC and ECHO) will be awarded to the Overall Winner of the series based on ‘ALL IN’ results. This competition will commence on May 31st with the Crosshaven-Milford Haven Race, an event that Martin Darrer has been working on non stop behind the scenes to organize. The Championship will also consist of the Kinsale-Fastnet-Kinsale race on June 8th, the Gas Rigs Race on July 31st, Crosshaven-Schull August 3rd and Fastnet Race-Calves Week August 9th.
The SCORA League will include all races in the KYC Spring Series, the Cobh to Blackrock Race and all races in the RCYC Autumn Regatta.
Commodore Vinnie O’Shea is highly enthusiastic about the 2012 programme and urges a good turnout for a season that promises excellent sailing with such a variety of courses and venues and hopefully wind and sun to be included in abundance.
