#Rowing: On the first day of Henley Royal Regatta, Ireland’s three crews fell to opposition which made good starts.

UCD’s senior eight were beaten by Drexel University of Philadelphia in the Temple Cup for student eights. Drexel carved out an early lead, but UCD came back were in real contention to about halfway, when the Americans moved away to a clearwater lead, which they held to the end.

 In the Thames Cup for club eights, Commercial fell to a young Dutch composite which made light of the difficult conditions of choppy water and a headwind. They started brilliantly, held off a push by Commercial and won well.  

Lady Elizabeth, rowing in the Wyfold for club fours, veered off course early and hit the booms. While they recovered, there was no real prospect of catching leaders Tideway Scullers.

The English crew cut across from their station at the start and took a lead which they did not relinquish. Lady Elizabeth tried hard in the warm conditions, but their young opponents held on to their lead and won by two and a half lengths.
