Irish Olympic Sailing News From Rio on Afloat.ie

Afloat.ie begins a series on the Irish Olympic sailing team in the build–up to August's Rio regatta.

The 32–month long Olympic qualification process, incorporating events ranging from Takapuna to Toronto, has concluded with 380 athletes sailing 274 boats that will represent 66 nations in Rio de Janeiro next month.

Afloat.ie's coverage – always from an Irish point of view – starts with a scene setting overview of Ireland's Olympic Qualification. Coverage continues in the build up to the regatta with details of the Irish Qualifiers in the Skiff Men, Skiff Women, Laser and Laser Radial.

There will be a final assesment of Irish chances followed by regatta reports when Ireland takes to Rio waters on August 8th.

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.
