The first round of the Dublin Team Racing League was sailed in blustery conditions yesterday in the relative shelter of Dun Laoghaire Harbour's Carlisle Pier where up to 76 short, sharp races were scheduled.

Dublin University Sailing Club hosted the first of the four League events with the goal to grow team racing in the Leinster region.

The League built on last month's Elmo Cup momentum at the Royal St. George Yacht Club and bridges the gap to college team racing with young sailors ranging from secondary school to university students participating.

Although the league will be held in Dublin, anyone from around the country is welcome to enter a team regardless of age or ability.

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.
