#Rowing: The faster Tara crew at the Fours Head of the River in London was disqualified. The quadruple competed and did reasonably well, but were disqualified for “breach of navigation rules and collision prior to race”: it is understood that the crew hit an Oxford women’s crew. The other Tara quadruple had to settle for a timing-only outing as illness ruled out Andrew Harrington and an England-based substitute was brought in.
#ROWING: A crew has been disqualified from the Skibbereen Regatta. The UCD Club Two women's eight substituted in a senior rower. When processed after the regatta, this pushed the points total of the crew well beyond the figure allowed for the grade. The UCD crew won the race, but Shandon Boat Club have been granted the win. The grading system involved is new this season, but Rowing Ireland warned those forming crews that "there will be fines imposed for future breaches of the rules".
