Irish 29er Pair in Gold Fleet Position in Weymouth

#ryayouthweek –  Irish 29er skiff sailors Sean Donnelly and Patrick Crosbie are through to the gold fleet of the RYA's Youth National Championships at Weymouth this week. The National Yacht Club pairing lie 17th in a fleet of 32 with gold fleet racing starting today on the 2012 Olympic waters. Results to date here.

Over 392 dinghy, catamaran and windsurf racers in the six youth classes will compete across four race course areas but only two Irish boats travelled to the RYA's premier youth event of the season. Five reigning champions will be bidding to retain their crowns.

Ireland's other participant is Howth Yacht Club's Ewan McMahon and Colin O'Sullivan who lie 19th from 44 after six races in the doublehanded 420 class. Results 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.
