Royal Cork Yacht Club's David O'Brien has been elected President of Irish Sailing taking over from Jack Roy at an AGM held last weekend.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the AGM was attended only by outgoing Roy and Chief Executive Harry Hermon with the quorum being achieved through proxy appointments from affiliated clubs.

The AGM also saw the retirement of Paddy McGlade and Sarah Byrne, both of whom had served their five-year term on the Board. Roy expressly thanked them for their work and commitment over the period, as he did with all of the Board members who contributed during his term as President.

New directors elected were Andrew Bradley nominated by the Royal Irish YC, and Sue Concannon nominated by Killaloe SC.

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.
