It is with the greatest regret that we report the death of Clare Hogan, an extremely talented sailor - particularly in the International Dragon Class - who also gave much to sailing administration, having served as Commodore of the Royal Alfred Yacht Club in Dublin Bay.

Clare was a member of the Royal St. George Yacht Club and a keen Dragon ace campaigning her Dragons Aphrodite and Cloud in Dublin Bay and at various international Dragon events.

Tributes have been paid by Dublin Bay Sailing Club here 

Funeral arrangements are here.

A full appreciation on Afloat.ie appears here

Our heartfelt thoughts and condolences are with her family and many friends.

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.
