All Quiet at Largs, Penney Drops in Poland

21st July 2010
All Quiet at Largs, Penney Drops in Poland

There was no racing for the Laser Radials in Largs, Scotland, yesterday, and with the centre of a weak low sitting over the northern Irish sea today, racing has already been postponed at the venue for today, which means no action for the 15-strong Irish squad attending the event. 

Two more races for the sole Irish sailor, Chris Penney, at the Youth Standard Rig Worlds in Gdynia, Poland, however. Penney let slip a 39th-place finish in his group, followed up with a 14th. That means he drops to 42nd overall, still a very respectable position in a 124-boat fleet.

More news on both of these events as we have it.

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.
