13th July 2016

#Canoeing: Sam Curtis was left to rue his close miss in the first run of the under-23 K1 at the canoe slalom World Championships in Krakow in Poland. The Irishman had to wait around for a protracted period as a technical issue was sorted out in the middle of the second run, and he did not do well. He touched five gates and missed one – gate 11. He was well outside the qualifying mark for the semi-finals. Noel Hendrick and Eoin Teague also missed out.

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.
