Cork Boat Club Win First Battle at Henley Royal Regatta

# ROWING: Cork Boat Club gave Ireland its first race win at Henley 2012, when they came through their first round test against Cardiff City in the Wyfold for club fours. The Cork crew eked out a lead early on, but Cardiff mounted a challenge right to the end when the pressure told and their steering faltered. Cork won by a length.

Imperial Boat Club, who were seeded, ousted Queen’s University in the Prince Albert for student coxed fours.

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.
