Ireland’s adaptive coxed four took fifth place in the A Final of the World Rowing Championships in New Zealand this morning. The crew of Anne Marie McDaid, Sarah Caffrey, Shane Ryan, Kevin Du Toit and cox Helen Arbuthnot found themselves off the pace in a race won by Canada, from Britain and Germany. The Irish crew consigned the United States to sixth and last place.

Karol Doherty’s outstanding season in the Arms and Shoulders single scull almost ended with a win in B Final.  The Donegal man led coming into the last 200 metres was deprived of victory (and seventh overall) by a late push by Benjamin Houlison of Australia.  

New Zealand, with Irishman Sean O’Neill in the six seat, made it through to the final of the men’s eight by finishing second in a very exciting repechage. Northern Ireland’s Richard Chambers, in the lightweight four, and Alan Campbell in the single scull, both representing Britain, booked places in their A Finals with good semi-final wins.
