The host club's 13-year-old Caoilinn Geraghty-McDonnell continues her winning run in the Optimist dinghy class and added a victory in the Royal St. George Yacht Club's Summer Optimist Championship yesterday in Dun Laoghaire to her National Championships success on Lough Derg last month. Geraghty-McDonnell finished the six-race series (with three race wins) on 11 points. Second in the 41-boat Senior fleet was Tralee Bay Sailing Club's William Walsh on 13, with third going to Howth Yacht Club's Cillian Twomey on 20 points.

Geraghty-McDonnell's clubmate Carolina Carra (12) won the 48-boat junior fleet on 14 points, just one point ahead of Sarah Scott of Howth Yacht Club. Third was Abigail Murphy, also of the host club on 17.

Thomas Judge of Sutton Dinghy Club stole a march in the 40 boat Regatta fleet that raced inside the harbour. Judge had a seven-point margin over Corey Browne from Royal Cork Yacht Club on 14. Third was Elizabeth Lyster of the Royal St. George Yacht Club on 17.0.

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.
