#ROWING: Ireland had some notable wins in the first session of the Home International Regatta at the National Rowing Centre in Cork today. Eimantas Grigalius won the men’s single sculls impressively, while Niall Duncan matched him in the lightweight single. The Carlow men’s pair of Niall Murphy and Alan McKenna also won, though Murphy returned to the sport after a long break. Relatively new entrants to the sport Emma Desmond in the lightweight single sculls and pararower Katie O’Brien also won.

The women’s junior double sculls and lightweight double sculls also brought Ireland top points, as did the men’s four of Thomas Deere, Ryan Corcoran, Daniel Buckley and Kevin Coughlan.

#ROWING: The Irish challenge in the Double Sculls at Henley Royal Regatta was ended this morning as the British national crew of John Collins and Jonathan Walton beat Dave Neale and Eimantas Grigalius of Three Castles. The British, who have been finalists at the European Championships and the World Cup in Aiguebelette, were half a length up by the top of the Island and three lengths up at 500 metres. The winner was never in doubt from that point.

#ROWING: Dave Neale and Eimantas Grigalius made an excellent start at Henley Royal Regatta today. The Three Castles’ men took the lead early in their heat of the Double Sculls and never relinquished it against the lighter crew of Chris Owen and John Hale from Roy Roy Boat Club. Neale and Grigalius had a three-length lead by halfway and won by that margin.  

Queen’s exited the Prince of Wales in the first round. The Irish quadruple fell to Tyrian and Thames in a race which was decided early on. Queen’s were behind by a length by 500 metres, and while they made a number of pushes they did not make enough progress into the headwind conditions.

Prince of Wales Challenge Cup (Men’s Quadruple Sculls, Intermediate): Tyrian Club and Thames RC bt Queen’s University (G McKillen, A Boreham, T Oliver, C Beck) 3l, 7:17.

Coastal Notes Coastal Notes covers a broad spectrum of stories, events and developments in which some can be quirky and local in nature, while other stories are of national importance and are on-going, but whatever they are about, they need to be told.

Stories can be diverse and they can be influential, albeit some are more subtle than others in nature, while other events can be immediately felt. No more so felt, is firstly to those living along the coastal rim and rural isolated communities. Here the impact poses is increased to those directly linked with the sea, where daily lives are made from earning an income ashore and within coastal waters.

The topics in Coastal Notes can also be about the rare finding of sea-life creatures, a historic shipwreck lost to the passage of time and which has yet many a secret to tell. A trawler's net caught hauling more than fish but cannon balls dating to the Napoleonic era.

Also focusing the attention of Coastal Notes, are the maritime museums which are of national importance to maintaining access and knowledge of historical exhibits for future generations.

Equally to keep an eye on the present day, with activities of existing and planned projects in the pipeline from the wind and wave renewables sector and those of the energy exploration industry.

In addition Coastal Notes has many more angles to cover, be it the weekend boat leisure user taking a sedate cruise off a long straight beach on the coast beach and making a friend with a feathered companion along the way.

In complete contrast is to those who harvest the sea, using small boats based in harbours where infrastructure and safety poses an issue, before they set off to ply their trade at the foot of our highest sea cliffs along the rugged wild western seaboard.

It's all there, as Coastal Notes tells the stories that are arguably as varied to the environment from which they came from and indeed which shape people's interaction with the surrounding environment that is the natural world and our relationship with the sea.
