Jay Colville’s First 40, Forty Licks from Down Cruising Club, fresh from his success in the 2019 Scottish Series, has taken the lead in the ICRA National Championships after the second 40-mile coastal race sailed today in medium westerly winds on Dublin Bay.

Forty Licks now leads the Royal Irish's Paul O'Higgins' Rockabill VI by a single point heading into tomorrow's final round but a protest for redress taken by the Race Committee naming two competitors may yet affect the overall standings in this class. More on this here.

The Sunfast 3200 Yoyo (John Coghlan) from the Royal St George Yacht Club is third in the nine-boat fleet.

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.
