#Rowing: The University of California, Berkeley, beat Trinity in the second round of the Temple Cup for college eights at Henley Royal Regatta today. The American crew won easily in the first round and were hot favourites to win this race. They franked their form and beat the Dublin university unit with ease. The verdict was two and half lengths.

#ROWING: Trinity bowed out of the Temple Cup for student eights at Henley Royal Regatta, losing by two-thirds of a length to Cornell University of the United States. Cornell, who had a close call against Oxford Brookes B in the first round, got off to a good start and took the lead. The heavier Trinity crew were able to limit that lead to about three-quarters of a length, but could not draw level, and encountered problems with their steering. Cornell covered a late push to win.

#ROWING: Joel Cassells was part of the Oxford Brookes eight which won the Temple Challenge Cup for student eights at Henley Royal Regatta today by beating Brown University from the United States. The time of six minutes 29 seconds was fast – bettered only in the Temple this year by Brookes’s time in the semi-final when they beat Cornell University by half a length. Cassells, a 20-year-old oarsman from Coleraine, competed for Ireland at the World Junior Championships and, in a pair with fellow Bann clubman Chris Black, won gold twice at the Coupe de la Jeunesse in 2011.

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.
