Queen's A Save the Day

2nd July 2010
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.
