The class continues to grow with 10 boats now regularly on the water as they prepare for a busy year ahead, the first event will be the Easterns in the Royal St George YC in Dun Laoghaire on 23/24th April and the pinnacle will be the nationals in Schull on 26-28th August.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading 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. 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.
