Greetings to all our North Sails Ireland sailing friends at home here in Ireland and around the world.

All of us are passionate about sailing and we can keep a calm head afloat when things get serious. Please join us in bringing that mindset into our lives on land these coming days and weeks. It is a tough time for us all. Stay connected everyone!

We will continue to provide you with customer service via the phone, text, email, Whatsapp or virtual meetings. Most of us are working remotely and ready to answer your questions and support you where possible.

We are preparing a schedule of content for you based on a variety of topics - cruising, technical topics, videos etc. We hope that you may find these interesting while we await getting back out on the water.

Our US colleague, Tom Davis, penned this informative piece about "What to Look for and How to Prolong the Life of the Material" in your spinnaker and ultimately when to replace it. We hope you like it. Click to read it here

From us all here at North Sails Ireland - stay safe and well, both mentally and physically.

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.
