The 2018 Intervarsity team racing championships started yesterday at Kilrush Marina on the Shannon Estuary in County Clare. The event organisers for this year's event are NUIG Galway and UCC Sailing Team.

Conditions on day one were ideal for team racing with over twenty teams taking part representing colleges across Ireland, Northern Ireland and international teams from Strathclyde University in Scotland.

It was a busy day for the five umpires on the water and race organisers completed 87 races. The 180 students transferring on & off the water were cheered on by lots of local supporters.

Entertainment off the water for students taking a break between races included bouncy castles, sumo wrestling & a BBQ.

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.
