Annalise Murphy makes her medal bid in Rio this afternoon at 5pm and it will be broadcast live on RTE Television. The Dubliner has been here before when she famously finished fourth overall in London 2012. There is no guarantee of a medal this evening either but Annalise is currently in Bronze medal position. Five of the worlds best sailors will be pushing each other all the way to see who can emerge with an Olympic medal for their country. It is going to be nail biting, exhilarating and comes with a Health Warning! 

There is probably no better place to watch the race than at Annalise's club in Dun Laoghaire. The National Yacht Club will be showing the race on a big screen on the clubhouse platform!

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.
