Sigma 33s Bound for Belfast Lough
The Sigma 33 Irish Championships take place at Royal Ulster Yacht Club this weekend with the fleet based in Bangor Marina.

The event, sponsored by Hamilton Shipping, has already attracted yachts from Scotland, Dublin Bay, Isle of Man and Strangford Lough and they will join the locals for eleven races over the three days. Seventeen have entered. 

Among the entries is the current champion, Tim Goodbody in White Mischief from the Royal Irish at Dun Laoghaire as well as five boats who took part in the recent Scottish Series including the class winner Donald McLaren in Sigmatic. 

Locals gearing up for the competition are great rivals, Blues (Hamilton/Milne) and the Taylor/Sherwood team in Sula as well as Gerry Bell’s Cariad and Chris and Michael Johnston’s Impulz.

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.
