NORA is organised under the joint auspices of Sligo Yacht Club, Mullaghmore Sailing Club and Killybegs Sailing Club. The event is kindly supported by MalinWaters.
NORA 2018 will incorporate the Ladies Cup Regatta at Rosses Point and the Mullaghmore Regatta. In addition there will be a race from Rosses Point to Mullaghmore and Wednesday evening racing in Mullaghmore so it should be a week of full-on action on the water. There will be 12 races in the NORA series with two discounts allowed. A special J24 prize has been introduced as well as overall IRC, ECHO and non-spinnaker categories.
Please note that all participating crew members are required to join NORA - membership €5 each. Individual membership forms will be available at reception.

MSC CRUISER REGATTa and Dinner
3 days 6 races
Three fantastic days of racing! We really look forward to seeing members from Sligo YC and Killybegs SC and further afield coming to Mullaghmore to compete for the silverware. This three day event is held over 27-29th July 2018.
First up is the Pier Head Trophy on the Friday night. Results will be announced in the Pier Head after racing.
Saturday sees three races being held where the SF Engineering Cup up for grabs. 'Eithna's by the Sea' restaurant adds a special touch with a regatta lunch (paella/seafood risotto) for €10. Demand exceeded supply last year so book your crew lunch in advance at registration to make sure you're in...
It wouldn't be the same without our Saturday night steak BBQ. MSC host the annual Regatta Dinner in the club house where locally produced Byrne's steaks go down a treat for very hungry sailors.
It's a BYOB event so don't forget to bring your own...
Finally Sunday everyone is chasing the White Sails Fleet Trophy and the Commodore's Cup.
There are limited number of visitor moorings available which will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please contact Des on 087 2438741 to check availability.
Racing will be under IRC and ECHO - if your boat doesn't have a handicap we'll find one for you.
