Ireland had an encouraging start to the final World Cup regatta at Lucerne this morning with a convincing win for Siobhan McCrohan in her heat of the lightweight single scull. Cathal Moynihan also qualified for the quarter finals of the men’s lightweight single, finishing third in his heat.

The lightweight quadruple put up a tremendous fight in their heat. A win would have taken then straight through to the final and Niall Kenny, Michael Maher, Mark O’Donovan and Justin Ryan pushed reigning world champions Italy (with three of that crew competing) to the line before taking second. Peter Hanily and Anthony English finished fourth in their heat of the lightweight pair, two places outside qualification.

The men’s pair of Cormac Folan (27 today) and Sean Jacob were also fourth in their heat,  two places away from a direct semi-final place.

Claire Lambe and Sarah Dolan also finished fourth in their heat of the lightweight women’s double scull.

Sanita Puspure finished third in the heat of the women’s single scull. Mirka Knapkova of the Czech Republic and Genevra Stone of the United States took the two automatic qualification places.

In the final race of the day involving the Irish team, Sanita Puspure finished fifth in a repechage won by Debbie Flood of Britain.

Queen’s University’s challenge in the Temple Cup for Student Eights ended with a narrow defeat to ASR Nereus of the Netherlands. Neither crew could establish a clear lead for most of a remarkably close race, but Nereus found enough as the crews passed the enclosures to win. The verdict was half a length.

UCD had a terrific win in the semi-final of the Prince Albert for college coxed fours at Henley Royal Regatta. This was a race all down the long course, with the Irish establishing a slight lead early on and holding on to it despite repeated pushes by Harvard. UCD won by two-thirds of a length.

The evening events brought no joy for Irish-based crews at Henley Royal Regatta. Carlow gave as good as they got for much of the way in their clash with West End in the Thames Cup for club eights, but the  New Zealand crew saw off a push at around half way and powered on to a convicing win. In two of the final races of the day, Muckross suffered steering problems at the start and lost to London Rowing Club’s A crew in the Wyfold for club fours, and Cork could not match The Tideway Scullers’ School in the Britannia for club coxed fours.

Queen's A Save the Day

Queen’s A caught and beat Brock University of Canada in the quarter-final of the Temple Cup for student eights. The Belfast crew were behind at the Barrier and Fawley but moved coming up to the one-mile mark and won by three-quarters of a length in six minutes 29 seconds.

NUIG had no answer to the power of Harvard in the Ladies’ Plate for intermediate eights, with the American crew clocking 6:28 and winning by two and a half lengths. In the Princess Grace, an open event for women’s quadruple sculls, the Belfast-City of Derry-Carrick-on-Shannon crew came up against the British national quad and were never in contention.

The old boys' club of Oxford and Cambridge, 1829 Boat Club, beat Galway Rowing Club in the Thames Cup for club eights; Queen's B could not deal with the slicker ASR Nereus in the Temple Cup for student eights; Star Club beat Commercial after a fine battle in the Wyfold Cup for club fours.

An Argentinian composite crew which had terrible steering problems early on passed and beat the Galway Rowing Club/Muckross crew in the first round of the Visitors' Cup at Henley Royal Regatta. The crew from Club San Fernando and Club de Regatas la Plata trailed at the Barrier, but stuck to their task and beat the Irish by two lengths.

 Carlow got the Irish back on track with a good one-length win over Star Club in the Thames Cup. Lightweight oarsman Peter Chambers mixed it with a man four stone heavier in the Diamond Sculls and lost by only a length and a half in the Diamond Sculls to British heavyweight oarsman Brendan Crean. 

 The day ended superbly for UCD, who were led by Goldie in the Prince Albert for student coxed fours but went on to win by three-quarters of a length.

Queen's A and B crews qualified for the quarter-finals of the Temple Cup for student eights at Henley Royal Regatta, topping off a list of five out of six wins for Irish crews before lunch on the second day of the event. The Queen's A crew were never seriously troubled by University of London, while the B crew did well to beat Nottingham, who had seen off a seeded crew, Newcastle University, in the first round.

 Two Irish crews justified their seeding in the Wyfold Cup for club fours. Commercial beat Vesta, and Muckross overcame Molesey, who mounted a strong challenge. Molesey inflicted the one early defeat on the Irish, when their heavier crew took advantage of the headwind to beat St Michael's in the Thames Cup for club eights. Galway did better in this event, beating Thames Tradesmen.

In one of the last races before lunch, Muckross, who were seeded in the Wyfold, beat Putney Town by a big margin.

The pattern continued in the afternoon, with St Michael's and Commercial commanding winners in the Thames Cup and Wyfold Cup. Galway Rowing Club fought hard in the final Irish race of the day in the Wyfold Cup, but fell to Nottingham and Union.
