Puspure's Conqueror Penney Wins Final at Henley Royal Regatta

# ROWING: Isolda Penney, who beat Sanita Puspure in the semi-final, had an impressive win in the final of the Princess Royal at Henley Royal Regatta this morning. The 37-year-old Canadian took control early and extended a one-length lead at the Barrier to a margin of ‘easily’ by the finish.

The Canadian quadruple which beat the UCC/London Rowing Club crew in the Queen Mother led almost almost all the way down the course in their final, but were beaten by the National Rowing Centre of Excellence, Australia, who finished with a decisive push.

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.
