Paddy Power Bookmaker is offering odds (scroll down the page) on Ireland's medal chances at this Summer's Olympic regatta. 49erfx Andrea Brewster and Saskia Tidey are 60/1. Ryan Seaton and Matt McGovern are 100/1, according to the bookie.

The bookmaker has so far not offered odds on either of Ireland's single–handers but this may change shortly with yesterday's confirmation of Finn Lynch as the last member of this year's Olympic sailing team.

Annalise Murphy, fourth in London (Ireland's best result in 32 years), has said eight radial sailors have potential to wn in Rio (including herself) so it will be interesting to see what the bookie offers on the Irish solo star.

The Olympic regatta starts in the first week of August.

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.
