Nine countries in the top ten overall at the Laser Radial Women's World Championships in Mexico yesterday indicates the events close proximity to August's Rio Olympics. Ireland is not yet represented in this ultra competitive line up but at least two top ten results yesterday for Dublin's Annalise Murphy put the National Yacht Club sailor up into 30th overall.

2014 World Champion and 2012 Olympic Silver medalist, Marit Bouwmeester is leading the 2016 Laser Radial Worlds being sailed in Mexico, with two US sailors in hot pursuit. Bouwmeester has won four of her six races in the qualifying rounds so far in the 71–boat fleet.

A 25 in race four for Annalise followed by five and eight scored in races five and six saw the 2013 European champion move up 17 places from 47th after a discard in the pointscore.

Howth Yacht Club's Aoife Hopkins, the 17–year–old who is competing at her first senior world championships is now 47th after scoring 26, 22 and 28 yesterday.

Qualifying rounds for Monday's all–important gold fleet continue today.  Results here.

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.
