Tonight at the RDS in Dublin, over 400 people will gather for the Afloat.ie Volvo Irish Sailing Awards to celebrate some maginificent achievements from 2017. As previewed this morning in the Irish Times, offshore sailing achievements look set to be a highlight of the evening where a dozen offshore feats include a top ten Fastnet Race result, a RORC series points winner plus a Transatlantic Race win.

Hosted once more by master of ceremonies Fiona Bolger, the night as always welcomes guests from Irish club and high performance sailing, including Irish Sailings youth and Olympic squads, national champions at all levels, class captains, club commodores, previous Sailors of the Year, and world and Olympic sailors.
