The Dublin Bay Sigma 33 fleet hold their coastal race tomorrow from Dun Laoghaire to Greystones marina in what is forecast to be favourable conditions for the novel race.

Up to six will compete in the 12–mile race for 'The Night Cap' Trophy presented by former Sigma 33 ace Timothy Goodbody.

On the way south the Dublin Bay based fleet will have a bird’s eye view of the Air Show over Bray, Class Captain Paddy Maguire told Afloat.ie

In last year's inaugural coastal race, Rupert (Dick & Philip Lovegrove) rounded the finish line mark only a boat length ahead of White Mischief (Tim Goodbody) after three hours of racing.

The prizegiving will be held in the new Greystones Sailing Club clubhouse.

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.
