Photographer Tim Wright captured the action on the water for the first day of Volvo Cork Week regatta yesterday. As Afloat.ie reported here, racing kicked off with an early start for the 17 teams racing in 'The Beaufort Cup', which set off on a 150-mile offshore race from Cork Harbour, bound for the Fastnet Rock and back to the finish. 

Scroll down for the photos of the 120–boat fleet below. More of Tim Wright's work 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.
