Today's second day of racing at the Irish Youth Sailing Championships was scrubbed in anticipation of the arrival of Storm Hannah at Royal Cork Yacht Club this morning.

Optimist class racing, however, did go ahead on a sheltered race course on the Curlane Bank at the Cork Harbour venue.

Tomorrow's racing schedule has been postponed for one hour to gauge the conditions before a further decision on the championships is made.

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.
