The SB20 class has cancelled its Midland Championships due to the very low number of boats signed up for this weekend's scheduled event. 

Class President Colin Galavan says 'This is due, in part, to damage incurred to some of the boats at the All Ireland Senior Championships'.

Dun Laoghaire-based Galavan told Afloat.ie 'In light of the need to assess and effect repairs to boats and also in light of the small number of entries registered for the event, we have decided to cancel this year's event'. 

Meanwhile, the sportsboat class will have an AGM in late November where a schedule of events for 2019 and some new ideas for the coming season will be unveiled.

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.
