The Royal St George Yacht Club took delivery yesterday of its new fleet of yellow and green Firefly dinghies, just in time for next weekend’s youth team racing event- the Elmo Trophy.

Now in its fifth year, this Dun Laoghaire Harbour based event has been hugely successful at encouraging team racing among school-aged sailors, giving them valuable experience before moving on to college sailing.

Entries are already in from teams from Northern Ireland, RCYC, Academy, the Laser and 420 classes and the RSGYC itself.

All entrants must be 19 or under on December, with 2 team members 16 or under. Entry is open here

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.
