#TeamRacing - It was a tough week in Michigan for Dan Gill, Richard Roberts and Scott Flanigan at the 10th annual Detroit Cup, which concluded yesterday (Sunday 27 August).

But the TCD team racing trio managed to stay above the bottom of the final standings, scoring a win against the Australian contingent headed by Will Boulden that took the petit final to secure third place.

Defending champions Harry Price, Murray Jones and Cameron Seagreen of DownUnder Racing had little trouble defending their title despite conditions that ranged from light and flunky to moderate over the four days of competition.

Australian Price is now the only two-time winner of the Detroit Cup, solidifying his team’s six position in the world match race rankings.

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.
