Galway Sea Scouts Repeat Success In ISA Powerboat Challenge

#Powerboats - The 24th Galway Sea Scouts made it two in a row when they came out tops in the ISA Powerboat Challenge for the second year running last weekend.

The winning team - consisting of Fionn Delahunty, Ciaran Jordan, Eamonn Murphy and Róisín Jordan, with manager Alan Delahunty and coaches Caran Oliver and Graham Daly - faced an ever tougher challenge at this year's event held in Galway Bay and around Galway Docks on Saturday 19 October.

They fended off strong competition from Galway City Sailing Club and Bellacragher Boat Club to take this year's title across a series of water exercises that included rescuing capsized dinghies and canoes, and lee shore rescues.

But Galway City didn't leave the challenge empty handed, as team member James Rattigan took the new award for 'best helm' at the evening's presentations at the Galway Harbour Hotel.

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.
