How to breathe new life into your sails this off-season
After a summer of being stretched, dunked, rough-handled, exposed to the elements, and stowed away in a rush, our sails are naturally looking a little worse for wear at the moment. Read why giving them a bit of TLC now should save you having the splash out on a new spring/summer wardrobe down the road.
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.

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.
