Royal Irish Yacht Leuwin skippered by Henry Leonard was the winner of today's Sigma 33 coastal race to Greystones Harbour. Second was September Song skippered by Maurice O'Connell. Third was Dermot Clarke's Gwilli Two.

The race was led by Gwili Two at the Muglins Rock on Dublin Bay with Moonshine a close second but by Bray Head the lead had changed a number of times. By the time the fleet arrived off Greystones the first three boats in the annual 12–miler finished within a minute after 1 hour and 47 minutes of racing.

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.
