Three Irish Crews on Mark in Duisburg

15th May 2010
Three Irish Crews on Mark in Duisburg

Irish crews recorded three third-place finishes on the second day of the Wedau International Regatta in Duisburg in Germany. For the Ireland team, the under-23 lightweight double scull of Niall Kenny and Michael Maher and Sanita Puspure in the women’s single scull were on the mark. The senior eight from Queen’s Unversity continued their good form, conceding only to the Poland and France under-23 squad crews. Poland won the under-23 world championships last year, and three of that crew and the cox were in the crew which finished 2.31 seconds ahead of Queen’s. Eton College, in fourth, were almost five seconds behind the Belfast crew.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
