We're not entirely sure how this plank ended up in the hull of a club 1720 after last Thursday's DBSC race on Dublin Bay but Afloat is reliably informed it is not an experimental foil and much more likely the end result of a 'port and starboard' with the marina. Ouch!

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.
