ICRA Nationals 2010 Kick off in Style - First Race photos here

This morning's opening race of the Liebherr 2010 ICRA National Sailing Championships has kicked off in style on Dublin Bay and although the 120 boat fleet  (drawn from 20 clubs) was shrouded in a sea mist for a time race course reports indicate tight racing in southerly breezes of over 10 knots.

Jump Juice in Division Zero damaged her pulpit and at one stage was dealing with a man over board. They have reired from today's racing. A lady crew member from another boat has been brought ashore with two borken teeth.. More updates as we have them. Photos from the race course are on our gallery now.

All classes are underway. Divisions Zero and One have two round the can races, and Divisions two and and three have three windrward leeward races today. the white sail fleets have two round the can races. The fleet is expected back ashore around 4pm.

Photos from this mornings racing by Bob Bateman are already on the Afloat gallery 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.
