#ROWING: Paul O’Donovan finished a close-up second to Petr Cabla of the Czech Republic in the C Final of the lightweight men’s single sculls at the European Rowing Championships in Belgrade in Serbia today. Cabla was an impressive winner, outlasting challenges from Croatia’s Luka Radonic and Slovakia’s Marek Reznak and then O’Donovan in the closing stages to win. He places 13th and O’Donovan 14th of the 20 starters.

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.
