As the last of the 42-boat fleet arrived into Dingle marina in County Kerry after racing 270-miles from Dun Laoghaire on Dublin Bay photographer Dominick Walsh has captured the atmosphere at one of Europe's most westerly marinas.

The 2019 Volvo Dun Laoghaire to Dingle “D2D” Race started from the National Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire on Wednesday, June 12th and the first finishers arrived in Dingle Co Kerry on Thursday night with a new course record set by Michael Cotter's Windfall and a successful defence of the overall 'D2D' title by Paul O'Higgins' Rockabill VI.

There'll be a full house for tonight's D2D prizegiving in Dingle!

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.
