The first four teams at this Saturday's Leinster Schools Team Racing Championship on Saturday at the Royal St. George Yacht Club will qualify to compete in the Irish Schools National Championships which will be held in Schull, Cork on April 28th/29th.

Teams are made up of three boats with two students per boat with entries to date coming from Saint Andrews College, Gonzaga College and Loreto College, St. Stephen's Green.

Short, sharp races in Firefly dinghies are 'rolling' all day with multiple races. The focus is on the team as opposed to the winning boat with results of the individual teams boats combining to the teams overall result.

Royal St. George's Ronan Adams says 'Team racing is enjoying a revival in Ireland at the moment with college and university sailing growing along with younger sailors enjoying the alternative racing and team competition of 'team racing' that fosters team thinking and inclusion'.

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.
