NUIG and Fermoy lose out at Henley
NUIG and Fermoy made their exits from Henley Royal Regatta at the semi-final stage today. In the Britannia for coxed fours, Fermoy came up against a heavier crew in Agecroft, who took the lead early and held off the Irish crew’s challenges to win by two thirds of a length. NUIG swapped the lead with a slick Isis unit in the early stages of the Visitors’ Cup for coxless fours, but struggled with their steering. Isis, stroked by Irishman Martin Walsh, won by three and three-quarter lengths.
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.
