Lambe and McCrohan Sixth in A Final

30th May 2010
Lambe and McCrohan Sixth in A Final

Ireland’s lightweight double of Siobhan McCrohan and Claire Lambe finished sixth in the A Final at the World Cup in Bled in Slovenia. The race was marked out by a dominant performance by the United States crew  of Abelyn Broughton and Ursula Grobler, who established an early lead and were never really tested. Britain’s Hester Goodsell and Sophie Hosking, who took silver, were over six seconds behind at the end. Lambe and McCrohan held fifth for much of the race but were passed by Britain’s second crew of Stephanie Cullen and Andrea Dennis in the closing stages.

 Racing in Bled was brought forward because of worries about the weather.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading 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. 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.
