Irish Sailors Compete at Kiel

21st June 2010
Irish Sailors Compete at Kiel

Max Treacy and Anthony Shanks are the top Irish performers at Kiel Week in Germany, sitting in eighth place after two races. The fleet is largely diminished from the 132-boat monster entry at the Europeans, with just 22 Stars showing for Kieler Woche.

Two Irish boats are fighting it out in the Star class, with Ryan Seaton and Matt McGovern sitting in a very respectable 16th from 59 after seven races. Ed Butler and Ben Lynch are further down the rankings in 44th.

Ireland's Laser sailors are struggling in the biggest Olympic fleet, with Matty O'Dowd 93rd of 119 boats, Ronan Cull 82nd, and James Espey in 58th.

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.
