ISIS J24 TEAM RACING – BAR 2919

Profile

History:

 

ISIS was purchased in 2007 from an owner in Caricou the Grenadines of Grenada. Her first racing with the team was in Bequia 2008 Easter regatta where she had one bullet in the 6 races. The team finished about 9th out of 12 boats approximately, but her journey with the team was on its way. After suffering some damage in 2007, and being repaired this was a magnificent start and was just a glimpse of what she can do. Her former Names have been “LimeLight” and “HOIC.”

 

The Genesis of her name comes from the Pagan Goddess of Love – ISIS. In every culture, creed,religion, and race one will find that each has a “Goddess,” and we were determined that she was “Our” Goddess.

The Team above has been sailing together consistently now for 2 years and we are growing from strength to strength and having fun being able to compete at the top of the local and regional fleets.

 

ISIS is gradually achieving its goals and we have begun to see some great success. Our greatest triumph so far has been to win The 2010 Match Racing championship over Hawkeye, 3 time local Nat’l Champs. We returned to the Final in 2011 only for our Rivalry with Hawkeye to intensify as the “Foreign RockStar laden Hawkeye team” managed to wrest the Cup from our hands.
