Dave Dwyer of Cork is the Afloat.ie/Irish Independent Sailor of the Month for June with his convincing retention of the British Open IRC Championship in Marinerscove.ie over three days of racing which concluded in the Solent on Sunday June 27th. Marinerscove.ie went on to hold her Cork Week crown in IRC 0 as well as take the Boat of the Week title, a ‘double double’ for the successful Mills Design IRC 39 and her dedicated owner.

Mark Mills was honored with the Irish Independent / Afloat.ie Sailor of the Year Award: “Globally successful yacht designer Mark Mills of County Wicklow is the Afloat.ie/Irish Independent ‘Sailor of the Year 2009’ after a year of exceptional achievements which built on his original accolade as Sailor of the Month a year ago.”

Mark Mills was named the January 2009 ‘Sailor of the Month’ by Ireland’s largest daily paper the Irish Independent, who mentioned the wide-ranging success of Mills Design in 2008, culminating in success in Key West this January..
