A strong turnout of Water Wags on Wednesday night in Dun Laoghaire Harbour counted for the National Yacht Club's Women at the Helm regatta as well as regular Dublin Bay Sailing Club (DBSC) points. 

19 Wag dinghies entered 'WATH', all helmed by women.

Race Officer Harry Gallagher of Sutton Dinghy Club set a course of three rounds and four beats in the sub-10-knot breeze.

Rio Olympic silver medalist Annalise Murphy crewed for her sister Claudine in Mollie and the sister's parents Con and Cathy came up from Domineer in County Tipperary taking advantage of yesterday’s lay day in the Fireball Worlds on Lough Derg where Con is Race Officer and also competed as regular Wag racers. Cathy helmed Mariposa with Con crewing as usual.

Number 49 Hilda sailed by Heather King was the winner, Number 45 Mariposa sailed by Cathy MacAleavey second and Number 15 Moosmie third. Third, in the WATH race was Nicky Gray.

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.
