As previously reported on Afloat.ie, James Nixon's Strangford Lough Yacht Club's River Class history was published in December last and has proved so popular that a re-print of another 100 copies has been ordered.

Already 50 of these have been sold.

The 100-year-old River Class was looking forward to celebrating its centenary last year, but the Pandemic scuppered that.

However, James's beautifully 207-page illustrated book (there are 400 photographs) was published and is much sought after. "I was fortunate to be able to get most of the research for the book finished before the Lockdown", he told Afloat.

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.
