Irish Slalom Series: come on, it's almost over

The location for the final round of the 2010 Irish Slalom Series has been confirmed for Tracht Beach, Kinvara, Co. Galway.

Official racing will take place on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th October. Monday 25th October will be reserved for freesailing and also a free coaching clinic for everyone from the top three gold fleet competitors.
