Royal Cork Yacht Club's annual Naval Race in Cork Harbour was sailed as a coastal fixture on Saturday with the Navy sending its yacht Tailte out from Haulbowline to compete.

After a short leg across the harbour, the RCYC spinnaker fleet, led by Brian Jones's Jelly Baby, raced to the Sovereigns off Kinsale in lumpy seas and good sailing breezes. 

The White Sails division raced across a course to Corkbeg, out to No 3, then Cork buoy into Ringabella and home.

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.
