McCann Wins Opti Nationals in Consistent Style

Royal Cork Optimist ace Peter McCann completed a clean sweep of the National Championships at Waterford Harbour SC yesterday counting nine of 11 results in the top three of the combined fleet of 249 boats. McCann's consistent performance put him 11 points clear of his second placed Partrick Crosbie alos of the Royal Cork. Third was UK visitor Aarron Holman. McCann is Ireland's top-ranked Optimist sailor and in July asserted himself at the front of an international fleet , posting a first and fourth to be in seventh position overall in the 144-boat boys fleet at the Optimist Europeans.

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.
