The National Yacht Club's Rory Fitzpatrick scored an impressive fifth overall at the Moth European Championships at large natural freshwater lake in Bordeaux, France.

In a clean sweep of podium places for British sailors, Mike Lennon was crowned 2016 European Champion. Three other Irish sailors competed in the 73–boat fleet. Alistair Kissane of Howth was 26th, club mate Neil O'Toole was 56th and David Kenefick of Royal Cork was 66th.

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.
