Rowers Revel In Calm Conditions as Cork Head Beats Weather

#Rowing: Over 200 crews competed in good conditions at the Cork Head of the River at the Marina today. The fastest crew on the day were Cork Boat Club’s senior eight, with a good time of 12 minutes and four seconds in the first of the heads. “Conditions were perfect, flat calm all day,” said Susan Dunlea, the event secretary. The head became the first and only head of the season so far to beat the weather.

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.
