First overall in Saturday's Royal Cork Yacht Club's annual Round the Island Race in Cork Harbour was the Sunfast 32, Bad Company (Desmond/Ivers/Deasy). 

The RCYC race was part of the North Sails Open League and had a finish at the Naval Base at Haulbowline.

This year's keelboat race edition had a smaller entry than normal due to the event coinciding with Crosshaven's Trad Sail festival. 

Kieran Collin's Olson 30 Coracle IV was second in the IRC Spinnaker division with the Jones family's J109 JellyBaby third. 

In IRC White Sails, Derry Good's Exhale won from Sean Hanley's HB 31 Luas. Third was Leonard Donnery's No Gnomes, a Nicholson 33.

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.
