Maiden medallists Tidey & Dolan are Sailors of Month: Three years ago Saskia Tidey had just vowed to “bring a medal home” with new 49erFX partner Andrea Brewster, while Co Meath sailor Tom Dolan was still formulating a plan to mount a Mini Transat solo campaign. Their progress hasn’t always been smooth, but in the past ten days both finally proved their podium potential. Read how they made a clear-cut case to become our Offshore and Olympic Sailors of the Month. 
Meanwhile, Greystones and Lough Derg sailor Pamela Lee is on course for Antigua Race Week honours on the TP52 Conviction, John Treacy cuts the ribbon on new-look Waterford Harbour SC clubhouse, Wicklow RNLI prepares to name new lifeboat, Dun Laoghaire bicentenart is marked in art, Ireland’s largest coastal freighter finally returns to service, and download class-by-class results from last night’s DBSC racing here

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.
