#MatchRacing - Kinsale skipper Philip Bendon and team made an impression on the first day of the 19th Match Race Germany in Langenargen yesterday (Thursday 12 May).

Ireland's top ranked match racers Bendon Race Team are currently ranked joint third in the two-day round robin after picking up three wins, as did Nelson Mettraux's Geneva Match Race Team, Dejan Presen's Lumba team, Przemek Tarnacki's Energy Yacht Racing team and Pierre Rhimbault's Matchtogether.

The day was dominated by the favourites Jablonski Racing, the German/Polish entry skippered by Karol Jablonski, and Poland's Lukasz Wosinski-led Delphina Sailing Team, both on four wins out of five heading into the second of five days' racing.

Only the top eight of 12 teams will qualify for the weekend's quarter finals on Lake Constance.

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.
