#TeamRacing - Afloat’s Sailor of the Month for March is competing with his Trinity College teammates at the Detroit Cup in the USA this week.

Richard Roberts joins fellow TCD helmsmen Scott Flanigan and Dan Gill on the Plain Sailing team at the 10th anniversary of the Bayview Yacht Club team racing event, which starts tomorrow (Thursday 24 August) with the round robin portion.

Eight skippers and crews representing five nations will take part in the four-day competition that marks the second stage of the USA Grand Slam series, as Scuttlebutt Sailing News reports.

The fleet includes defending champion Harry Price and his DownUnder Racing team from Sydney, Australia, alongside Murray Jones and Cameron Seagreen – currently ranked sixth in the world team racing stakes.

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.
