Did Irish champs help Skerries to TidyTowns title?
As Sligo duo Tim Corcoran & Brendan Brogan raced to their Irish championship crown last month, little did we know that their hosts were also topping the leaderboard in a quite separate competition. Using his famous powers of deduction, Winkie Nixon explains how yesterday’s investiture of Skerries as TidyTowns Supreme Champion 2016 may have something to do with a smartly turned out fleet of GP14s.
Meanwhile, the Coast Guard issues warning over purple peril on Western coast, anglers are urged to kit out with lifesaving float tackle, and exhibitors report “serious business” done at Southampton Boat Show as new designs prepare to debut at Monaco.

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.
