Howth’s Eve McMahon managed to stay in second overall after Thursday’s first two finals races in the Laser Youth Worlds on Lake Garda even with missing out on the first race with a DNC.

She came back with a third in race F2, and despite now having to carry her eighth in one of the qualifiers - which had been her discard going into the finals sequence - her net points of 17.0 put her 7 points ahead of third-placed Anja von Allmen of Switzerland, and 5 points astern of overall leader Alessua Palanti of the Czech Republic.

The pace and consistency at the top of the fleet of 54 helms in the Girls Gold Division is ferocious. Aside from McMahon’s DNC, the lowest race placing in the top five has been a 27th, and a significant majority of their results have been in single figures.

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.
