In sailing, Brian C expects the 1720 sports boat class to explode again in the coming months. He says "with a lot of the top IRC boats sold and heading for foreign lands, the 1720 can be picked up easily/cheaply and coupled with only having to find 4 crew plus the skip, its easy and most of all affordable to campaign". PLUS they're great to sail in 25 knots. Join in here.

In power boating, Blimp is looking for help in running the P750 European Championships. "Could you be a marshal?"  Help him here.

On inland waters there will be a public meeting on the Newry-Portadown Canal. We're also keen to get feedback on Waterways Ireland's draft bye-laws here.

And in a new post this morning, there is a suggestion to rewrite the Rules of Sailing. We've had a message from an experienced Irish campaigner who says "there is a huge reluctance to go in to the protest room. Instead people turn a blind eye to all sorts of things on the race course. Not much honour there, really". He says "if we can't self-police what's the point in having all these rules?" He wants just three rules. They're on the forum here.

We want your contribution too! Log in, join 1,000 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.
