#Rowing: Henley Royal Regatta did not yield any early joy for Irish crews this morning. In the Wyfold Cup coxless fours, Lady Elizabeth were beaten by Nottingham Rowing Club ‘A’. 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.
