| How to breathe new life into your sails this off-season |

Meanwhile, this Friday’s SB20 Ireland AGM will see changes at the top, Peter Boyle shines at a challenging GP14 youth champs, Dun Laoghaire Harbour trailer peril video goes viral, the Volvo Ocean 65 fleet begins an eight-month refit programme, Limerick aims for place on world rowing map after inaugural Kings Island River Race, concerns are raised over Skellig Michael drone shoot, and while the ribbon is cut on Killybegs small craft harbour, the €18million revamp of Cork Harbour faces delay.
