# ROWING: The Cork Boat Club four of John Paul Collins, Stephen Carroll, Colm Dowling and Shane Mac Eoin put in a good challenge in the second round of the Wyfold Cup but could not overcome Rob Roy from Cambridge at Henley Royal Regatta. The English crew led by half a length at the quarter mile and held off Cork’s pushes to extend their lead.

Colin Williamson of Queen’s University lost to El Salvador’s Roberto Lopez in the Diamond Sculls. Lopez powered away from Williamson early on and did not yield up the advantage.

# ROWING: Ireland’s only eight competing at Henley Royal Regatta bowed out of the Temple Cup today. Trinity led the University of Michigan at the Barrier and Fawley (roughly halfway). A push by Trinity was ineffective, but the Americans staged their own which took them into the lead. They took control and won by one and a quarter lengths.

# ROWING: Cork Boat Club gave Ireland its first race win at Henley 2012, when they came through their first round test against Cardiff City in the Wyfold for club fours. The Cork crew eked out a lead early on, but Cardiff mounted a challenge right to the end when the pressure told and their steering faltered. Cork won by a length.

Imperial Boat Club, who were seeded, ousted Queen’s University in the Prince Albert for student coxed fours.

#ROWING: Skibbereen Rowing Club are the eFlow Go Row League champions of 2012. The west Cork club amassed 466 points over the three rounds and won Division One for men and for women.

All three regattas which hosted the eFlow League had huge entries. Skibbereen Rowing Club held the first regatta of the series at the National Rowing Centre in April and had 560 entries, becoming the biggest one-day regatta ever held in Ireland. Queen’s University staged the second round at Castlewellan and Cork Regatta at the NRC last weekend was the final in the series. Metropolitan Regatta at Blessington Lakes, which would have been the third round, had to be cancelled because of high winds.

“We’re very pleased to have won,” said Dominic Casey, the head coach of Skibbereen. “I think the league is good for rowing. The entry speaks for itself.”

There are prizes of €400 for each division winner and €400 to the overall points leader.  

Casey’s club was taking its third League title in succession. This season they were pushed hard by Queen’s University in the men’s class (192 points to 172), while Three Castles, who are based at Blessington, were second in women’s Division One. Lee won men’s Division Two and Commercial of Dublin took women’s Division Two.

# ROWING: Cork Regatta provided John Keohane with a fine boost as he heads off to compete in the Diamond Sculls at Henley Royal Regatta, as the Lee Valley man beat Paul O'Donovan into second in Division One of the men's single sculls at the National Rowing Centre last night.

Helen Walshe of Three Castles won the women's single, beating clubmate Eimear Moran into second as darkness fell at the NRC. Walshe, like Keohane, thus took  two of the eFlow Go Row Grand League rounds. The Division One titles in men's and women's pairs were won by St Michael's of Limerick.
