It's been a breezy start to the Delta Lloyd Regatta in Holland where Ireland has two entries both of which won their preceding events in style last week. Anna Lise Murphy fresh from Europa Cup success at the Hoorn took a 5 and 3 yesterday but slipped today with results in the bottom half of her Laser Radial 61-boat fleet.

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.
