#Surfing - Sign-ups are still welcome for a charity tandem surfing competition in Portrush this coming weekend, as the Coleraine Times reports.

Waveriders will be lining up two-by-two on the East Strand this Sunday 20 March for the charity event in aid of Aware NI, the only mental health charity in Northern Ireland focusing on depression and bipolar disorder.

It's one of a number of events over St Patrick's Weekend in aid of mental health support, with Aware in the Republic hosting its annual Harbour2Harbour walk around Dublin Bay this Thursday 17 March.

Similar walks will be taking place on St Patrick's Day morning at Cork Harbour (details) and at Salthill in Galway (more 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.
