Afloat's Bumper Summer Issue hits the newsstands on Wednesday. The 96–page full colour issue is action packed with updates of this summer's Irish sailing and boating scene.

Available from all good newsagents nationwide (and selected chandleries), the high summer issue priced at €5 includes the results and reports from this month's ICRA nationals in Tralee plus the Dun Laoghaire to Dingle race.

With 350 entries already and more to come before the first gun, we preview the runners and riders for Ireland's biggest regatta, Volvo Dun Laoghaire week in a fortnight's time.

Already, the event is attracting over 100 visitors from outside Dublin Bay with a number of new sailing attractions for the 2013 edition, including a new coastal course series.

There's a special focus on the Flying fifteens, comment from Tom MacSweeney about why as Islanders we can't see the Sea.

There is a warning about the dangers of carbon monoxide risks on boats, the first visitors in to Greystones marina in County Wicklow (now open two months) and more good news about Irish RIBs.

There's also an intrepid Figaro finish for a young Cork sailor and a very busy period for the Coastguard. 

Scroll down for a preview of what to expect in Summer Afloat: 

All the latest news and updates from around the coast.

#springafloat – Now long evenings are officially with us and winter is finally losing its grip, the Spring issue of Afloat magazine hits the newsstands at the same time antifouling is being dabbed on hulls.

Afloat's 64–page issue previews the season just around the corner and reports on a winter of considerable Irish sailing and boating news; Boat registration, Our sailor of the year breaks her nose, Olympic sailors share €168k, Moth sailing, the new Ports policy, Dublin Bay sight-seeing, a leading harbour master retires, Yacht clubs cut fees and  Dun Laoghaire cuts its moorings.

There's a buzz about the waterfront. New initiatives to promote boating such as those at Castlepark at Kinsale Co. Cork (see page 26) and the opening of a new marina in Greystones, Co. Wicklow (see page 16) are positive signals that the marine industry is fighting back. It couldn't come soon enough after a torrid few years.

Buying or selling your boat? Castlepark Marina has announced key partners to kick start the 2013 season. After 20 years in operation, popular coastal marina Castlepark  is launching a number of initiatives aimed at rejuvenating leisure boating on the south coast.

Lift–ins have been delayed by March's unseasonably low temperatures and even though some of the hardiest sailors are already back on the water early voyages have been battered by high winds.

Volvo Ocean race winner Damian Foxall sailed here a few weeks ago from France on an ultra fast trimaran in a bid for the Round Ireland speed record but never made the Dublin Bay start line. We're using the opportunity to recall past records since 1889! (See page 34).

And off Bermuda, a series of unfortunate events led an Irish crew to abandon ship. The Wolfhound story is a dramatic tale with some important lessons and told by WM Nixon on page 42.

On home shores Irish sailing is also in stormy waters after intense debate united clubs and classes in calls for a change of tack at the Irish Sailing Association (ISA) (see page 20).

As more regulation looms (see page 2,18) and resources are scarce, sailing's stakeholders need to be sure the sport is adequately represented.

Olympic Dinghy sailor Annalise Murphy jetted off to Florida for her first round of the ISAF World Cup but our 2012 Sailor of the Year (see page 4) has also been racing in a freezing Baltimore, Co.Cork for the Laser Munster title and also trying out a hydrofoil dinghy in Dun Laoghaire (see page 10).

Likewise Commodore's Cup captain Anthony O'Leary and his Antix crew endured Arctic conditions on the Solent to take third overall in IRC division 2 at RORC's Easter Challenge.

O'Leary will lead an ICRA fleet at its national championships that returns to Tralee in June (see page 48) but not before an important ICRA crew training initiative takes place in Howth Yacht Club later in April.

ICRA has identified that it needs new blood for the sport to grow. If you're interested in joining the crew there's a host of different events to try this Summer.

As well as Tralee Bay's big event, the National YC hosts a race from Dun Laoghaire to Dingle and Kinsale stages the Sovereign's Cup. In July Dun Laoghaire clubs come together to stage the country's biggest regatta, a unique partnership that showcases Irish sailing.

It's one of the reasons Dun Laoghaire's Royal St. George picked up the Mitsubishi Club of the Year award, not least for its interaction between club and town. (see page 6).

Created in 1996, the Afloat Sailor of the Year Awards represent all that is praiseworthy, innovative and groundbreaking in the Irish sailing scene.

This is a national award especially designed to salute the achievements of Ireland's sailing's elite.

Over nearly two decades the awards has developed in to a premier awards ceremony for water sports.

Since it began 17 years ago the awards have recognised over 200 monthly award winners in the pages of Ireland's sailing magazine Afloat and these have been made to both amateur and professional sailors.

The first ever sailor of the year was Dinghy sailor Mark Lyttle.

Now proudly in its 18th year we've already recognised sailors, ex-pat gordon Maguire from Howth for for his dramatic win in January's Sydney-Hobart race became the first monthly winner in 2013 and the account of his exploits are on this website.

As a sport we often grumble that sailing doesn't get the recognition it deserves but through these awards and the support of our sponsors past and present there is a bigger chance of presenting the remarkable achievements of Irish sailors that all too often do not get the media coverage that we all think they deserve.

An online readers poll plus a vote from a panel of sailing journalists and administrators select the annual winner.

Ever wanted to work in a boating magazine? Ever wondered how to get a start in the industry? What better way to get your foot in the door than an internship with Ireland Afloat magazine? This opportunity might be for you. Baily Publications Ltd is calling for applications for an editorial internship. Working primarily on the Afloat.ie website and across a variety of custom titles including Afloat magazine, the Baily Publications editorial internship is 3 to 5 half days per week for three months to six months duration. We are flexible.

What are we seeking in a potential intern? Mostly, we're looking for signs of interest and aptitude. We're not interested in candidates who simply want to pad out their CV so they can get jobs in PR. We want people who can write and report, and are passionate about doing both.

Obviously boating knowledge plus a working knowledge of relevant computer software such as Indesign and Website CMS systems is an advantage.

This work experience placement is unpaid. Some tasks will require use of your own computer. Some tasks can be completed remotely.

Work will include researching and writing articles, sub-editing, editorial coordination work, proof reading and general administration work.

If you are interested, send your CV and a writing sample (from any work you may have had published in school or college mags or websites) to [email protected]. Please put 'INTERN' in the subject line of your application.

Applications for these positions will close at the end of August and internships will commence mid September.
