Royal Cork's David Kenefick has just finished foiling week on Italy's Lake Garda sailing his Full Irish Moth. Kenefick is keeping an eye on the Italian venue given it will host next year's World Championships in 2017 where a fleet of 200 is expected.

The Crosshaven sailor finished 19th out of 43 which is something of a comeback after breaking his rig at the Europeans and missed two days racing earlier this month in France.

'I'm happy as I've only being racing the Moth a few months, with this being my first full regatta', Kenefick told Afloat.ie

'I've a few improvements to make to the boat including a bow sprit and a new foil', he added.

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.
