On the Forum: Sailor of the Month

1st October 2009
On the Forum: Sailor of the Month

Forum: Byrni doesn’t believe the slogan ‘sport for all, sport for life’ applied in the case of the Junior helm who didn’t get entry to the Seniors, while marhay says we need to recognise the younger sailors who do so well. Gordon Davies suggests Mrs (Sally) O’Leary as Sailor of the Month – for managing a houseload of champions! Matty O’Dowd is mentioned several times in this forum, having won the Munster Championships, ISA Trials, Europa Cup, Radial Nationals and ISA Junior All Ireland. The physical stress and strain of sailing on young sailors has thrown up several points and opinions – see what Claire has to say on that issue.

We want your contribution too! Log in, join over 700 Irish boating fans and have your say here. Our aim is to provide Irish sailing with a more open environment for discussion than is available in the printed magazine or on the website or elsewhere. A forum for Irish boating of all types. Register and have your say. If you have a news item for us, or want so see more coverage of any particular issue, or just have something to say to Afloat, you can simply email us ([email protected]) Thanks for your interest.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
