The exemplary rescue by Lough Swilly-trained skipper Conall Morrison (35) in the Clipper 70 Class in the early stages of the Rolex Sydney-Hobart Race has been rewarded with a full two hour redress by the International Jury for the time he and his crew took out for the textbook retrieval of a man overboard from another boat. So effectively was it done that both boats were able to resume racing with full crew. And Morrison and his team sailed with such verve that they then took more than 30 minutes out of the rest of their class during the race. With their well-deserved redress, that swift performance gave them the class win.

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.
