# CANOEING: Eoin Rheinisch and Ciaran Heurteau qualified for tomorrow’s semi-finals of the K1 at the Canoe Slalom World Cup in La Seu d’Urgell in Spain.

Both Ireland competitors did enough in their first runs in the heats to progress, but Rheinisch greatly improved his first-run ranking of 15th by clocking a hot time of 84.98 seconds in his second run to move up to fourth. Hearteau, who stood in 25th after the first round, could not improve in his second run and finished 37th overall.

Two Ireland competitors at the Canoe Sprint European Championships in Zagreb qualified for B Finals. Barry Watkins finished sixth in the semi-final of the K1 500 metres and Jenny Egan eighth in her semi-final of the women’s K1 500.

# ROWING: Sanita Puspure finished sixth in the World Cup Regatta in Munich today. Puspure had a disappointing start, while Denmark’s Fie Udby Erichsen of Denmark, in the lane beside her, shot away from the field. Puspure recovered, but by the closing stages, when Ekaterina Karsten took over the lead to win, Puspure had faded back to sixth. Emma Twigg of New Zealand took silver and Donata Vistartaite of Lithuania was third, with Erichsen having to settle for fourth.

#CANOEING: Ciaran Heurteau first represented Ireland in 2006, but he reached new heights today when he finished fifth in the canoe slalom World Cup final in Pau in the Pyrenees.

The 24-year-old, who was brought up in Paris but has an Irish mother, qualified for the  final by finishing third in the semi-final, and he competed well. Chasing an exceptional mark of 100.17 seconds set by Etienne Daille of France, Heurteau came down the course in 102.32 seconds, but he had touches on gates 12 and 24 (the second last on the course), which resulted in four seconds in time faults. Daille took gold, while Heurteau was less than a second off a bronze medal.

# ROWING: Sanita Puspure held off Germany’s Peggy Waleska to take second place in her heat and secure automatic qualification for tomorrow’s semi-final of the single scull at the World Cup regatta in Munich. The race was won well by Fie Udby Erichsen of Denmark.

Waleska is chasing selection by Germany as their representative in London 2012, but she could not catch Puspure, who was competing for the first time since she secured her spot at the Olympic Games.

Claire Lambe finished third in her heat of the lightweight single scull and third again in her repechage, where she was outsprinted for the crucial second place. The Ireland Adaptive Four missed out on an A Final place when they finished a close-up fifth in their repechage.

The Half Ton Class was created by the Offshore Racing Council for boats within the racing band not exceeding 22'-0". The ORC decided that the rule should "....permit the development of seaworthy offshore racing yachts...The Council will endeavour to protect the majority of the existing IOR fleet from rapid obsolescence caused by ....developments which produce increased performance without corresponding changes in ratings..."

When first introduced the IOR rule was perfectly adequate for rating boats in existence at that time. However yacht designers naturally examined the rule to seize upon any advantage they could find, the most noticeable of which has been a reduction in displacement and a return to fractional rigs.

After 1993, when the IOR Mk.III rule reached it termination due to lack of people building new boats, the rule was replaced by the CHS (Channel) Handicap system which in turn developed into the IRC system now used.

The IRC handicap system operates by a secret formula which tries to develop boats which are 'Cruising type' of relatively heavy boats with good internal accommodation. It tends to penalise boats with excessive stability or excessive sail area.

Competitions

The most significant events for the Half Ton Class has been the annual Half Ton Cup which was sailed under the IOR rules until 1993. More recently this has been replaced with the Half Ton Classics Cup. The venue of the event moved from continent to continent with over-representation on French or British ports. In later years the event is held biennially. Initially, it was proposed to hold events in Ireland, Britain and France by rotation. However, it was the Belgians who took the ball and ran with it. The Class is now managed from Belgium.
