Dun Laoghaire sailor Saskia Tidey continued her winning run in Kiel Week last weekend where she, and her new Team–GB team mate Charlotte Dobson, added Gold at the German Regatta to Silver earned at Sailing World Cup Finals in Santander, a fortnight ago.

The Royal Irish Yacht Club sailor also won bronze in Hyeres in April, earning her a sailor of the month award.

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.
