This marine resource website gathers together news, photos and videos of interest to people involved in (or hoping to get involved in) all types of sailing and boating in Ireland plus a host of marine related activities.
We're blogging on the very latest Irish Sailing news plus yacht and sailing clubs, dinghy and one design classes and regatta and championship reports. There's pages dedicated to each area of the sport covering everything from Team Racing to Tall Ship Sailing plus Youth Sailing, Cruiser Racing, Offshore Sailing, Cruising, Olympic Sailing and Afloat's very own Sailor of the Month Competition running since 1996.
Afloat.ie also has a dedicated section on Irish Ports and Shipping news dealing with Cruise liner arrivals, Shipping, ferries and cargo. This section also has a comprehensive listing of the necklace of Irish marina locations around the coast, including the very latest at Greystones in County Wicklow.
There's a dedicated section on marine safety bringing together the latest news in the work of Ireland's search and rescue (SAR) agencies, inlcuding the RNLI lifeboat, the Coastguard and reports from the Marine Casualty Invesitgation Board (MCIB) and timely warnings from Irish Water Safety.
