# ROWING HENLEY QUALIFIERS: The qualifying races for Henley Royal Regatta last evening did not bring joy for Galway Rowing Club. Two crews competed in the Junior Women’s Quadruple, but failed to qualify for the regatta, which begins on Wednesday.
Belfast Boat Club pulled off a fine result in qualifying for the Britannia, a club coxed fours event. They were one of just three of eight crews to qualify.
However, the Queen’s University eight did not make it through the qualifiers to the draw of the Temple Cup.
There's less than two months to go till the inaugural Ironman triathlon in Galway.
As reported on Afloat.ie last year, the City of the Tribes was chosen to host Ireland's first ever Ironman 70.3 event on 4 September.
Thirty-five qualifiying slots at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Florida are up for grabs in the event, which comprises a 1.9km swim in Galway Bay, a 90km bike ride through Connemara and a 21.1km run through the city streets, finishing at Eyre Square.
Individual registrations are now closed for the race, but some slots are still available with charity teams. For details visit ironmanireland.com.
