In a busy week in Mallorca, Olympian Finn Lynch, a Brand Ambassador to Viking Marine, shares his weekly tips.

This week Lynch focuses on the merit of setting personal performance goals and the motivational advantage of some early personal wins.

'We all know my dream goal is to win an Olympic gold medal for Ireland! But having smaller process goals are a great way to keep you focussed on what you should be doing right now and not thinking too far ahead.

This winter I wanted to improve my fitness and strong wind sailing. Yesterday on our Irish Sailing Group bike ride I hit a personal goal that I know puts me right up there within the laser fleet in bike fitness!  Happy days!

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.
