With ICRA organisers saying there are still at least 20 boats identified that are yet to enter, the buoyant entries for the Royal St. George Yacht Club Championships are up to 81 for the June event, kicking off a Summer of sailing events on Dublin Bay.

As David O'Brien points out in this morning's Irish Times Sailing Column here, Northern Ireland cruiser-racers, Under-25 Academies and a Half-Ton touring party are pushing numbers up in a buoyant fashion.

ICRA insiders tell Afloat.ie that Joker II, John Maybury's reigning Cruisers One champion, is expected to defend her title. There are eight U 25 teams now entered with Howth Yacht Club and Royal Irish Yacht Club yet to join this fleet, so over a dozen are expected in total.

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.
