Big Breeze Puts Olympic Team in the Hunt in Medemblik

Big breeze played in to the hands of Ireland's top Olympic campaigners in the first day of the Delta Lloyd regatta. Annalise Murphy nearly had the overall lead save for a capsize but she holds second overall. Both the Stars are in the top ten and O'Leary leads.

After scoring 10,10,21 Ryan Seaton and Matthew McGovern are 10th overall in the 49er dinghy and Ed Bulter and Ben Lynch are 22nd in the 39-boat fleet.

Barry McCartin and Thomas Chaix are 38th, Robe Lehane and Tom Mapplebeck are 44th and after an OCS double Olympian Ger Owens crewed by Scott Flannigan is 61st in a fleet of 68.

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.
